Environmental politics

We focus on environmental problems confronting indigenous and non-indigenous communities in both the Global North and South. Inspired by notions such as indigenous relationality to the land, feminist visions of social/global/environmental justice and/or green proposals for environmental sustainability, we examine how political practices like ecological citizenship, environmental stewardship and accountability and sustainable urban/rural land management systems might be contribute to the resolution of practical issues like extractivism, climate change, and the loss of ecological and cultural diversity.
