He will discuss how societies negotiate the apparently competing agendas of environmental protection and social justice and why some countries perform much better than others on this front by examining land rights conflicts and the fate of forest-dependent peasants in the context of the different forest property regimes in India, Tanzania, and Mexico. Prakash Kashwan is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Connecticut.
