Politics in Disguise

A project being developed in the framework of Resonances IV on NaturArchy.

Project description

What are the politics of the earth systems? How did values develop in and around us, that inform those politics? Can we learn from our surroundings how to make policies that take on responsibilities for molecules as well as humans? Knowledge from policy analysis, evolutionary and behavioural biology and ecology will be focused in a multi species performative attempt to vitalise the spaces of human politics for a sustainable future.
