Our colleagues David Kuhn, Fanny Frick-Trzebitzky et al. recently published a new ISOE discussion paper on the conceptualisation of the non-human in the context of environmental conflicts.

Environmental conflicts are the subject of current research in the natural and social sciences. In this discussion paper, the authors outline which different research directions deal with environmental conflicts and how the non-human in the conflict, for example animals, plants, forests or water, is conceptualised. Finally, they argue that while much of existing research attributes an active effect to the non-human, an explicit and comprehensive conceptualisation is often lacking.
