Landscape change does not simply impact peace and conflict between humans, it also impacts relationships between humans and the nonhuman world. Our research advances knowledge of how interactions between people, livestock, and wildlife are changing in ecosystems affected by landscape change. We are especially concerned with intensified or unusual human-wildlife conflict.
Key research projects in this area include:
- Decolonising human-wildlife conflict through oral histories of coexistence
Some of our relevant outputs include:
- Extinctionscapes: Spatializing the commodification of animal lives and afterlives in conservation landscapes
- Green grab by bricolage – The institutional workings of community conservancies in Kenya
In September 2020, we presented early findings of our human-wildlife conflict research at the biennial meeting of the Political Ecology Network as part of a panel on Convivial Conservation. A recording of the presentation is available below.
