This workshop will discuss narratives and processes related to the complex nexus at the interface of ecological transformation, security, and governance, taking place in pastoral drylands.
The focus will be on institutional as well as vernacular perspectives that frame such nexus, with the aim to disentangle misplaced understandings of current dynamics. The workshop will concentrate on contemporary unfoldings in the Sahel and the Horn of Africa, as crucial areas where local and global dynamics are reconfiguring socio-political arrangements and livelihoods, intimately reshaping governance patterns and security issues.
The workshop will take advantage of the expertise of institutional as well as academic standpoints. Findings and reflections developed by the PASTRES project (Pastoralism, Uncertainty, and Resilience) will work as a theoretical and empirical frame to comprehend ongoing developments.
This event is organised by the PASTRES project and the EUI Environmental Challenges and Climate Change Governance Interdisciplinary Research Cluster.
