Ghost Acres and the Global Waste Economy
Project Director and Principal Investigator: Dr. Simone M. Müller
The DFG Emmy-Noether Research Group Hazardous Travels. Ghost Acres and the Global Waste Economy investigates structures and dynamics of international hazardous waste trade since the 1970s.
Through our reserach, we seek to understand how the system of the global waste economy could seemingly be built simultaneously on structures of "voluntary exchange" of toxic materiality and "garbage imperialism."
