CitationR. Caner Sayan and Aysegül Kibaroglu, “Exploring environmental justice: Meaningful participation and Turkey’s small-scale hydroelectricity power plants practices,” In: Zerrin Savaşan and Vakur Sümer, Environmental Law and Policies in Turkey, Springer, 2020, pp. 141-158.
This chapter explores the emerging concept of meaningful participation within the framework of environmental justice, with specific reference to Turkey’s recent experience of building several small-scale hydroelectricity power plants (HEPP). The paper scrutinizes the HEPP process, including its entrenched legal framework, and attempts to come up with suggestions to elaborate further on the concept of meaningful participation.
