GAIA’s work is cited in David Pellow’s investigation of global environmental inequality and the role of activists, organizations, and networks in resisting it. Building on environmental justice studies, environmental sociology, social movement theory, and race theory, and drawing on his own research, interviews, and participant observations, Pellow examines the transnational waste trade from its beginnings to the present and describes a pragmatic path toward environmental justice, human rights, and sustainability. See, in particular, pages 143-145 for an account of GAIA’s role in the transnational environmental justice movement.
