In our November event, we pose a series of conversations about the potentials and limits that have emerged in diverse rights of nature (RON) rulings. Topics to be discussed include: the political, ethical, and juridical challenges involved in granting legal personhood to non-human beings and specific ecosystems, as well as lessons from Colombia, India, and the United States regarding climate jurisprudence activism and RON movements.
Pre-circulated recorded conversations between anthropologists, lawyers, environmental activists, and community leaders will be followed by a virtual roundtable. Participants include: Ximena González, Ashish Kothar, and Frank Bibeau.
