This afterword serves as a commentary on the essays published in this special issue of Norsk Geografisk Tidsskrift-Norwegian Journal of Geography on 'Landscape, Law, and Justice.' By focusing on the normative claims of the authors in this issue, it argues that landscape theory needs to be better integrated with theories of social justice as they are being developed elsewhere in geography and political philosophy. In relationship to landscape and landscape change, it argues that we need to look at the complexity of the world and continually make judgments about what is worth preserving, what is worth stewarding, and what is not - and that these judgments have to be rooted in an explicit theory of justice.
