Abstract

Climate justice as a concept indicating the moral dimension of the problem of climate change has been a subject in the center of climate debates especially in the past two decades. Climate justice that centers on the disproportionate impacts of climate change particularly onvulnerable communities also constitutes one ofthe most contentious subjects of the climate negotiations. Actually, the fact that the treaty to be created for the post-Kyoto period should lend an ear to voice of climate justice and the idea that the new regime should be based on justice and equality has turned out to be a frequently expressed demand. Within this framework, the study aims to determine the different demands within the discourse of climate justice and evaluate to what extent these demands are met in the Paris Agreement.
