Hello Rashid. I have just moved to London and am doing a semester at UCL, so that's why the profile changed. I'm not aware of what is going on in Borneo regarding a peace park movement, please explain....

Happy holidays Rashid.

Burma - hmmm, do you think that the political instability in that country is actually related to environmental instability? I agree that power in political systems is reliant upon the control of natural resources because that is ultimately the productive capacity of the nation, but I do not necessarily think that this is a direct contributor to the conflict in Burma. Once again, it's not my area of expertise though. My friends would know more about the conflict in Burma than I do for sure. It's worth researching and exploring though.

Rashid - I would love to do something like that. The Niger Delta is easily one of the most classic examples of environmental insecurity and conflict. I wonder though how we can identify an approach or issue that has not been previously explored and/or in process? I have not studied the Nigerian situation extensively, so I would appreciate your background on this.

Something that I have been looking into a lot over the last year is the idea of criminal prosecution of environmental crimes that rise to the level of international criminality. The effects of activities that rise to the level of international environmental criminal violation are too severe to ignore as mere harms to the environment, they destroy human communities as well - and so we cannot permit them to continue with such abhorrent impunity. Worthy of pursuit?

Hello Rashid, most of my work has a focus on the environment and law, but the greater context is better stewardship of natural resources and ecosystems to address tensions or conflicts over resources (or fueled by natural resource extraction), between humans and wildlife or between humans and protected areas. The law can play a role in this by providing more equitable frameworks for environmental protection and sustainable development - ensuring public participation, equitable distribution of benefits, transfers and capacity-building. Mitigating these tensions can reduce possibilities of violent conflict and it can bring different groups of people or stakeholders together to collaborate over a common interest, for example a shared water resource. I have been working with a peace park initiative between Honduras and Nicaragua, peace parks can be a great model for peace, sustainable development and environmental conservation. A friend of mine from Nigeria had once suggested creating a peace park between Nigeria and Cameroon - what do you think?
