An interview with Dr. Shafqat Hussain on ‪Conservation‬ in the ‪Western Himalayas

April 1, 2016

Shafqat Hussain is trained in social and political ecology and is interested in understanding how human societies and environment shape each other. He is particularly interested in how geo-political and intellectual changes effect the perception of nature, and human society’s relationship with it. Shafqat’s research is based in South and Central Asia, focusing on how local marginal communities and outside players interact with the environment of the region, and what role the region has in world history.
