Description

Latin America is often misunderstood in Britain. Its history and complex current socio-political landscape often blur into one.

This event will bring to life the different facets existing in Latin America with a focus on natural resources governance. Bringing together leading experts and practitioners, conflict and socially committed futures in the field of natural resources governance will be presented.

We wish to explore how Europe can learn from Latin America and how Europe, in its own ways, is also facing conflict and narratives of resistance.

The event will feature talks from a range of contributors including:

Dr Su-ming Khoo, School of Political Science and Sociology, National University of Galway;
Larissa Mies Bombardi, Department of Geography, University of São Paulo;
Brian Wynne, University of Lancaster; European Network of Scientists for Social and Environmental Responsibility;
