"The aim of this special issue is to move forward the normative discussion of political legitimacy and justice specifically. Our starting assumption is that it would be unwise to proceed with particular technologies and develop governance systems without at the same time addressing hard questions about justice and legitimacy. One reason for this is that clarifying the central normative questions is key to understanding obstacles to, parameters for, and constraints on research, policy and governance. In particular, it matters for policy if some kinds of geoengineering turn out to be easier from the point of view of justice and legitimacy than others."
