Global climate, local forest

Knowledge, Nature and the Re-Structuring of rural environment in the southern Mediterranean

The blog reports on my dissertation project, exploring how climate change politics are both transforming rural environments and society-environment relations in the Middle East and North Africa. Drawing on theory and methods from Political Ecology, Anthropology and Science Studies, this study wants to use the example of forest projects integrated in international carbon-markets to explore how such a project is transforming local forests, their use and value in the southern Mediterranean and how practices, identities and knowledge are transformed where “global” environmental discourses interact with local communities and actors.

Das Thema ist meine Dissertation, die derzeit denselben Titel hält wie der Titel des Blogs. Ich untersuche im Grenzgebiet von Wissenschaftsgeschichte, Geographie und politischer Ökologie wie Klimaschutzprojekte im südlichen Mittelmeerraum und dem Nahen Osten sowohl die Struktur ländlicher Räume als auch die Mensch-Natur-Verhältnisse verändern.
