Building Peace to Save Nature: the importance of human-human interactions in conservation

Friday 11 January 2019.

With Dr Isla Hodgson

Are we studying the wrong species?

In trying to address environmental problems, we often overlook the relevance of studying and managing people. Conservation conflict researcher and mediator Dr Isla Hodgson explains the importance of understanding the social and political sides to saving nature, and how we can draw on the principles of trust- building and negotiation from humanitarian conflicts to solve wars over wildlife. She reflects on her own experiences “on the front-line”, including her most recent work studying the conflict over raptor conservation and driven grouse shooting in Scotland.
