Capitalism Nature Socialism

Capitalism Nature Socialism is an academic journal founded by James O’Connor and Barbara Laurence. CNS has been publishing articles on political ecology with an ecosocialist perspective since

Capitalism Nature Socialism web version (CNS Web) is a project that intends to expand the aims of the print version of the journal in establishing an online community of red-green activists, who may also be scholars. Like the print form of CNS, CNSWeb encompasses anti-capitalist perspectives that are both egalitarian and environmental in orientation.

CNSWeb is a platform for intellectuals who may be outside or at the margins of academic institutions and it is a forum for encouraging and facilitating critical debates on timely issues of environment and radical politics—feminist, anti-capitalist, anti-fascist, anti-racist, anti-imperialist. We believe that debates are essential to building new forms of thought and strategies on politics and/of the environment, and is ultimately crucial for mobilising creative political action.

CNS is non-sectarian, affiliated with no political party or organised political tendency and open to diverse views within left ecology/ecological left movements. We invite contributions from all over the world, in the form of essays, reports on activist work, artwork, or any other publishable form. While this is a web site, we adhere to high standards of intellectuality.Capitalism Nature Socialism is an academic journal founded by James O’Connor and Barbara Laurence.[1] It is published by Taylor and Francis. It publishes articles on political ecology, with an ecosocialist perspective.
