POLITICAL ECOLOGY OF CONSERVATION

This project takes a broad and critical look at:

  • conservation sciences theory
  • ecosystem services theory [1]
  • cultural ecosystems services theory[2]
  • the production of environmental knowledge
  • science and expertise
  • the emergence of “neoliberal science[3]” (Lave et al 2010)
  • the policies and politics of conservation and control emerging as a result.

Footnote definitions:

[1] “Ecosystem Services are the aspects of ecosystems utilized (actively or passively) to produce human well-being. (Fisher, et al. 2009).”

[2] “The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (Sarukhán and Whyte 2005) defined cultural ecosystem services as “the nonmaterial benefits people obtain from ecosystems through spiritual enrichment, cognitive development, reflection, recreation, and aesthetic experiences”.

[3] (Lave et al 2010)
