The Institute of Latin American Studies, the Argentina Research Network and the Argentina Solidarity Campaign are delighted to announce a talk by Gabriela Merlinsky (CONICET; Instituto de Investigaciones Gino Germani, University of Buenos Aires) exploring the intersections between environmental conflicts and debates on development in Argentina and Latin America.

In Argentina and other Latin Americans countries, environmental conflicts bring about debates regarding productive models and their long-term social and environmental consequences. Considering the growing relevance of these matters in public debates, this talk will examine how environmental conflicts generate turning points in the construction of development narratives.

The talk will address a series of important questions regarding environmental conflicts and development in Argentina and Latin America: What are the most long-lasting consequences of these conflicts in terms of the inscription of environmental issues in public debate? How do these new social and political ways of constructing the environmental question enable the elaboration of different models of contesting and/or justifying social inequalities? How does collective action contribute to a redefinition of common good and common goods?

Drawing on over ten years of research in the field, these questions will be explored through a number of case studies that look at how environmental conflicts generate turning points in each community or region’s lines of historical development, and bring about debates regarding productive models and their impacts on the present and future equality of societies.

The event is free, open to the public, and all are welcome! Please register at:
