Livelihoods, local communities and cultures in international conservation lawThe objective of the study is to conduct the first anthropological assessment of international conservation agreements. The study is to identify and explain the (non-) existence of space for local communities within international conservation, and to communicate the findings to the stakeholders involved. It will be explored how local rights, knowledge(s) and customs are being recognised in conservation law and how actively they can participate in the implementation of conservation strategies.
