Anh Vu presents her paper at DSA 2020: 'Illegal wildlife demand reduction campaigns in authoritarian Vietnam: ungrounded environmentalism'
In the advent of what infectious disease scientists have labelled a 'novel coronavirus', Sarah Bezan argues that zoonotic disease transfer is in fact far from new. Instead, it is an emergent iteration of the ‘old’ violences of extractivism, colonial expansion, and animal commodification.
In our latest podcast, Anh Vu and Jared Margulies discuss demand in illegal wildlife products and the communications campaigns that have developed to try and address this issue, with a particular focus on Vietnam.
