Forensics in the Anthropocene

Presentation and Discussion

The concept of the Anthropocene poses a number of fundamental challenges to the domain of law and in particular to that of the laws of war. This is because human violence and environmental change interact in ever more intense ways. Desertification and war have been going hand in hand in the Sahel, while resource exploitation and human rights violations have erupted in places such as Papua, Canada, the US, Chile, Brazil and many others. This panel will discuss principles productive to understand the entanglement of human and natural violence.

With Nabil Ahmed, Maayan Amir, Adrian Lahoud, Hannah Meszaros Martin (Modelling Kivalina), Godofredo Pereira, Paulo Tavares.
Moderation: Kathryn Yusoff
