Indigenous Environmental Governance: Strategies and Struggles for Safeguarding the Future.
Mistra Geopolitics had co-organise a workshop exploring the idea and practical possibilities of indigenous environmental governance, together with the Institute of Latin American Studies, the Department of Political Science and the Stockholm Resilience Center (the safeguarding project and SwedBio) at Stockholm University. The workshop also enjoys close cooperation with the University of California at San Diego (UCSD), the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), Swedbio as well as a series of indigenous communities representatives in Latin American and Scandinavia. In its focus on indigenous environmental governance the workshop explored the diverse strategies and struggles used by indigenous populations to safeguard environmental justice, human rights and biodiversity. Whilst the majority of the presentations focused on Latin America, the organizers hope that the wider relevance of the workshop also was visible. Speakers from Mistra Geopolitics included Maria-Therese Gustafsson and Karin Bäckstrand.
