Nurturing new geographies of coexistence: rethinking cultural interfaces in resource and environmental governance

This session brings together work of scholars who have engaged with a wide range of cultural interfaces in resource and environmental management systems to reconsider the genealogy and application of a series of related concepts that provide a powerful set of tools for nurturing respectful working relationships between customary and state-based governance and planning in resource and environmental governance.

The session will bring together in nourishing conversation a conceptual, methodological and activist discourse and invites wider participation in this discussion from a broad community of scholars, managers, activists and communities. Key themes include: Coexistence and Pluralism; Situated Engagement; SIA and Community Mapping; Indigenous rights in natural resources; Community development and Sustainability; Ethics; Community Resilience; Mobility; Co-management; and Cultural interfaces in resource and environmental governance.

Paper proposals are invited from scholars working in related areas and topics. Contact:
