Environment, the law and local communities: an inter-disciplinary discussion of fair and equitable benefit-sharing in international law and political sociology

10 November 2017 | 16:00 - 18:00 | Seminar
Seminar Room 1.13, Liberty Building

Guest speakers: Professor Elisa Morgera (Strathclyde) and Dr Louisa Parks (Trento)

The BeneLex project on fair and equitable benefit-sharing in global environmental law takes an inter-disciplinary approach, examining benefit-sharing from the perspective of international law but also turning its focus to the local level. Using a methodological approach that seeks to combine international law, international relations, political sociology and political ecology, the project seeks to unpack fair and equitable benefit-sharing from the viewpoint of local communities. This presentation will discuss some of the project's findings and the challenges of inter-disciplinarity.
