Signs of a new politics of nature: reflections on the Anthropocene

by Jelle Behagel

As human action is increasingly having an effect on global processes, including climate change, global pollution, and land use change, the processes that drive societies and the processes that drive nature are becoming increasingly intertwined. Examples of river rights, plastic soups, and regional droughts can illustrate how ecological and political processes are directly influencing each other and shaping territories. These examples also illustrate a new politics of nature that is emerging slowly but surely across the globe. This type of politics is less concerned with identity and values and more with establishing new connections between society and nature in the public domain. As a result, nature governance is increasingly also health, water, energy, and food governance, inviting us to rethink what it means to govern nature.
