The increasing interest in justice, power and the political landscape expresses a seaof change occurring in the meaning of landscape itself, from landscape as scenery to landscape as polity and place. It is in this socio-political context that it becomes necessary to consider the role of power, and the importance of justice, in the shaping of the landscape as an area of practice and performance with both cultural and environmental implications.
