The Lorax Project: Understanding Ecosystemic Politics

Project description

The politics of ‘speaking for’ border-crossing ecosystems

Nature knows no borders. For instance, currents move plastic litter from its point of origin – perhaps a carrier bag blown into sea outside a tourist town in the UK – to the distant shores of the Svalbard archipelago in the Arctic. Likewise, the Amazon is crucial to life and livelihoods in the rainforest and also of importance to the global climate. The EU-funded LORAX project explores border-crossing ecosystems to expand our understanding of global political architecture and of how shared, border-crossing problems are managed. The findings will be used to better understand the broad political consequences of states ‘clubbing together’ to support ecosystems of the Arctic Ocean, the Amazon Basin and the Caspian Sea.
