Planet B: Laleh Khalili on Sovereignty and Seafarers

“Instead of treating the ocean as a space for frictionless accumulation, can we imagine a “blue new deal” that refuses to carve up water into routes and resources controlled by the most powerful?

This episode features insights from Tina Ngata, an advocate for environmental, Indigenous and human rights based in Te Ika A Maui (the North Island of New Zealand), Laleh Khalili, Professor of International Politics at Queen Mary University of London, Elif Saracan, an activist for the Kurdish Womens Movement, and Elizabeth Johnson, a Professor in the Department of Geography at Durham University.”
