Locating Nature. Making and Unmaking International Law

How does international law and its core concepts structure the ongoing ecological degradation and social inequalities? How can we (re)imagine a more equitable and sustainable relationship between law and nature? What can the study of international law teach us about the implications for law’s corrective force in transnational contexts? Join us for the launch of “Locating Nature: Making and Unmaking International Law” published by Cambridge University Press, and edited by the brilliant Usha Natarajan (Columbia) and Julia Dehm (LaTrobe).

The collection of essays will be introduced by Usha and Julia, and four commentators will discuss some of its salient ideas from a variety of interdisciplinary approaches: 

Saptarishi Bandopadhyay (Osgood Law)

Devanshi Saxena (Antwerp) 

Ingo Venzke (UvA)
