The course encourages a critical perspective on the practice and epistemology of conservation and anthropology, paving the way for the integration of the two disciplines methodologically and theoretically. It pays particular attention to the interrelationships between local/indigenous populations and environmental groups, policy makers, legislators, and institutions concerned with the protection of the environment (e.g. Natural Protected Areas, green development projects).
