CFPs: The WildCRU Conservation Geopolitics Forum 19th – 22nd March 2019, Oxford, UK

“We invite papers that propose, develop and critique the practices and processes of conservation geopolitics. We encourage submissions from multiple disciplines, given that the aim of the forum is to generate broad-ranging conversations and collaborations. These disciplines may include but are not limited to conservation science, international relations, law, development studies, environmental economics, tourism studies, political science, political ecology, human geography, anthropology, environmental humanities, and environmental ethics. We encourage both applied and critical interventions.

Papers should address one or more international challenges in wildlife conservation where geopolitical relationships between countries influence the possibilities of response. In particular, we encourage papers that consider political, social, economic, technologic, and ethical situations, practices, processes, and interventions. For example, we anticipate papers on topics such as species migrations across boundaries, major cross-border infrastructure initiatives, international biodiversity treaties and treaty diplomacy, the impact of war and conflict on wildlife, international trade and wildlife, linkages between social justice and conservation outcomes, and transnational economic instruments for environmental governance, amongst other issues.

Please submit a title and 200-word abstract in the form below, indicating whether the proposed submission is for an oral presentation or poster. Please also indicate if you are applying for a bursary to attend (we have a very limited number of bursaries available that will cover travel, accommodation and delegate fees, and we encourage domestic and international students and practitioners to apply).”
