In conjunction with an upcoming special issue of Genocide Studies and Prevention of the same title, the International Association of Genocide Scholars is sponsoring three panel discussions for the purposes of sharing ideas, building connections, and highlighting the interdisciplinarity of this subject. This event is co-sponsored with the Raphaël Lemkin Genocide Prevention Program, the Environmental Peacebuilding Association (EnPAx), and is part of the Road to Geneva.

To create the most inclusive setting, these panels will be hosted by institutions in the Eastern Standard time zone, Central European time zone, and West Australian time zone, and they will be recorded and made available. Each panel will focus broadly on a sub-topic under the umbrella of environmental conflict & security, with the acknowledgement that these topics are intertwined.

The University of Western Australia will host the final panel in the series, which will center on the gendered dimensions of environmental security. Pulling in topics from the previous two panels, this discussion will emphasize how gender affects and is affected by environmental conflict dynamics, and what that means for potential solutions.

Featuring panelists:

Dr. Marisa O. Ensor, Justice and Peace Studies Program, Georgetown University

Nyachangkuoth Rambang Tai, Gender and Social Justice Manager at Assistance Mission for Africa

Dr. Úrsula Oswald Spring, Researcher and former Secretary of the International Peace Research Association

Discussant: Dr. Tobias Ide, Lecturer in Politics and Policy, Murdoch University
