Presented by Adrian Lahoud
Cases of “environmental violence”—situations where climate change and political or armed conflict get entangled—demand a shift in explanatory models and structures of causation. Allowing us to connect individuals, environments, and artifices, field causality models and forensic methodologies can be used to articulate the material basis for the imperative to fundamentally reconfigure the political field and to investigate what should be our political or juridical response to this new understanding of violence.
