| Advocacy after Bhopal: Environmentalism, Disaster, New Global Orders. By Kim Fortun. The 1984 explosion of the Union Carbide chemical plant in Bhopal, India was one of the world's worst industrial disasters. Some have argued that the resulting litigation provided an "innovative model" for dealing with the global distribution of technological risk, while others consider the disaster a turning point in environmental legislation.

Spiraling outward from the victims' stories, the narrative sheds light on the way advocacy works within a complex global system, calling into question conventional notions of responsibility and ethical conduct.
