The World Conservation Congress, held in Hawaii in 2016 was the team’s fifth event, which was funded by NSF award 1560812. The research team combined ethnographic data from previous collaborative event ethnographies to examine the ways conservation has been reframed over time and space. In continuation of previous CEE events, research subteams again focused on how appeals to human rights are used to contest market-based approaches, the evolution of marine conservation over time, the politics of knowledge and translation of science, and business and biodiversity and natural capital initiatives.
