Politics of conservation law (Stella James, Sudhamshu Mitra): day1
"This workshop is geared towards students interested in understanding the legal system that governs conservation practice, and the politics behind these governance systems. We will be engaging with the overall legal framework, as well as going into depth with a few different laws across different systems, such as coastal and marine, forest, protected area and wildlife, biodiversity-related etc. While we will be focusing on the specifics of the laws itself, a greater focus will be on the politics of the laws: the history of the laws and why they came into existence; the debates and conflicts around them; how they affect different actors in the space etc. Through the use of case studies and experiences of the resource persons in working with different stakeholders in the conservation space, we hope to be able to deepen how conservation scientists and students view the politico-legal space around conservation."
