In conjunction with an upcoming special issue of Genocide Studies and Prevention of the same title, the International Association of GenocideScholars (IAGS) is sponsoring three panel discussions for the purposes of sharing ideas, building connections, and highlighting the interdisciplinarity of this subject. This event is co-sponsored with the Environmental Peacebuilding Association (EnPAx) and is part of the Road to Geneva.

Each panel will focus broadly on a sub-topic under the umbrella of environmental conflict & security, with the acknowledgement that these topics are intertwined.

The first panel will be hosted by Worcester State University in Massachusetts, USA. This panel will focus on how Indigenous people worldwide have been affected by and are at the forefront of issues of environmental justice, environmental security, and climate change. This topic is inherently intersectional and interdisciplinary, and the discussion aims to reflect that reality.
