FOA TORRES, Jorge  y  TUNINETTI, Luis. International Environmental Politics and the Discourse of Pope Francis: Towards an Ecology of the People?. Letras Verdes [online]. 2019, n.25, pp.77-99.  Epub 01-Mar-2019. ISSN 1390-6631.

Pope Francis’ discourse in the field of environmental policy has recently generated numerous reactions and controversies, especially since the appearance in 2015 of the Encyclical “(Praise be to you - On Care for Our Common Home” (Laudato Si '). In that framework, this article firstly identifies the main logics or grammars that have intervened in the political-ideological discussions around the environmental cause in recent decades, on a Latin American and world scale. In the second place, the discourse of Pope Francis is located and characterized in that context. The approach in which this work is inscribed is the analysis of political discourse. Based in the recognition of the constitutively antagonistic character of societies, it is oriented to the critical understanding of socio-discursive practices, emphasizing in their political instances or foundational moments. The central argument of the article is that Francisco's positioning, while differing from the developmentalist logic, is antagonistic to neo-Malthusian and neoliberal positions. At the same time, it approaches critical ecology, modulating it both in relation to the role of transnational corporations and in criticizing the technocratic paradigm and incorporating the notion of the people.
