Description:

How do Indigenous Peoples and Organizations access and navigate global policy arenas like the Paris Climate Summit and the World Conservation Congress to influence international environmental policymaking? In this talk, Kim Marion Suiseeya examines the politics of representation to better understand the possibilities for and challenges to indigenous pursuits of justice.

Kim Marion Suiseeya’s research examines the interactions between norms, institutions, and justice in global forest governance. Her areas of expertise include environmental justice, global environmental governance, political ecology, and the politics of biodiversity conservation in Laos and mainland Southeast Asia.

This is part of the Buffett Institute Faculty & Fellows Colloquium. Find it on Facebook.
