Beskrivning

FIRE (Fighting Insurgency Ruining the Environment) is a project funded by the Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions research grants created by the European Commission.

The aim of this project is to reverse the causality and look into how conflicts lead or contribute to environmental degradation. It will do this by focusing on forest fires in the Middle East through a detailed study of the cases of Turkey, Syria, and Israel. The questions that will be addressed in this context are:

Is there a positive correlation between inter- and intra-state conflict and forest fires?
How do conflicts affect ecosystems and biodiversity as well as the lives of inhabitants?
How are forest fires used discursively by conflicting groups?
