Abstract:
This panel will engage with contemporary debates over key socio-environmental challenges facing the SE Asian region, including illegal logging, deforestation for palm oil production, and trans-boundary haze. The primary focus will be on the implications of these challenges, and current policy strategies to address them, for ‘justice’ and local livelihoods. This will include discussion of the multiple and competing claims of ‘justice’ and how they differ among nations, across the urban and rural divide, between indigenous and non-indigenous populations and between traditional and informal governance systems and legally recognized, state-based governance regimes.
