The international ENTITLE (European Network of Political Ecology) conference named “Undisciplined Environments” will be held in Stockholm between 20-24 March 2016. As part of the ENTITLE network, Gabriel Weber, Ignasi Puig, Irmak Ertör and Santiago Gorostiza from ENT will participate in the conference and they will present their recent work in the final ENTITLE conference.
The conference focuses on three main themes: decolonial political ecology, post-capitalist ecologies and enclosures vs commons, and will host many important keynote speakers such as Kim Tallbear, Ailton Krenak, Catherine Larrere, Alf Hornborg, Nancy Peluso and Ugo Mattei, among others. It aims to bring many senior and young Political Ecology scholars and activists together and strengthen the network.
Early-bird registration is open until 15th of February. Information about the program, registration, and accomodation can be found in the conference website: http://www.conference-politicalecology.eu
ENTITLE is an EU-funded Initial Training Network under the Marie Curie actions of FP7, coordinated by ICTA at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and with the collaboration of 11 research and NGO partners (including ENT).
ENTITLE trained 17 researchers in the emerging field of political ecology, giving them the theoretical, analytical and complementary skills that will make them employable in jobs related to environmental policy analysis and advocacy. Research and training had framed around five key clusters concerned with the analysis of: environmental conflicts; environmental movements; natural disasters; changes in co-production and the commons; and environmental justice and democracy. Research is based on a series of empirically-based investigations of a geographically and thematically diverse set of case-studies. The researchers of the network will collaborate to offer a theoretical and methodological framework for the empirical research and will synthesize the results of the individual cases in a series of publishable outputs. Research will be action and policy-oriented culminating in a series of action and policy briefs targeting civil society organizations and policy-makers.
