How Political Economy Shapes Human-Wildlife Interaction
This policy brief highlights how political economy shapes human-wildlife interactions, highlighting the importance of four key shifts:
- from human-wildlife conflict towards a mindset of coexistence,
- from a hyperfocus on the local level towards taking into account global economic and political processes driving local conflicts,
- from a focus on technical aspects towards consistently prioritizing the political, and
- from separation towards an awareness of how different cases of human-wildlife interaction are connected across space and time.
