Alejandra Mancilla,a CPS affiliate, has won an ERC starting grant for her project Dynamic Territory: A Normative Framework for Territory in the Post-Holocene. Congratulations Alejandra! What an achievement!


The project aims to provide “normative criteria to solve conflicts of interest regarding the use of land and natural resources” in “a post-Holocene world where sea level rise, desertification, droughts, crop failure, water shortage, floods and extreme weather events will become the norm.” The project will develop “a novel framework for territory on a global scale, reassessing the traditional rights and duties associated with it” in order to to be suitable for a world characterized by “instability and unpredictability,” and will do so using an “interdisciplinary methodology that integrates environmental studies, geography and international law into political philosophy.”
