This workshop will interest any of your PhD student whose research encompass or intersects how resources are governed, what conflicts mark them and the multi-layered politics of resource use, and seek an opportunity to present and discuss their research amongst peers and experts.

There is no registration fee and lunch and refreshments will be included.

The workshop will comprise of GEJG members Prof Thomas Sikor, Dr Adrian Martin and Dr Vasudha Chhotray leading presentations on their research with interactive Q&A sessions. Their research has been working to develop a new analytical lens of global environmental justice to examine place-based environmental struggles in relation to larger political and economic processes. The advantage of this approach lies precisely in its potential to combine, intersect as well as transcend scales. This is being realised in our research in a variety of fields: land, forestry, water, biodiversity, fisheries, seed genetics, disaster risk and climate vulnerability.

The afternoon session will be student led with participants having a chance to present and debate their research.
