Join us for Resource Politics 2015

The ESRC STEPS Centre’s annual conference, Resource Politics: transforming pathways to sustainability will be held at the Institute of Development Studies on 7-9 September 2015. Registration is now closed.

Among the plenary speakers are: Rohan D’Souza, Betsy Hartmann, Melissa Leach, Johan Rockström and Michael Watts with those among the panel speakers including Tor Benjaminsen, Esteve Corbera, Wendy Harcourt and Kathleen McAfee.

As resources become valued, marketised and commodified, now is a critical time to ask tough questions about the politics of resources as we seek pathways to sustainability that assure both environmental integrity and social justice.
