New publication! The limits of economic benefits: Adding social affordances to the analysis of trophy hunting of the Khwe and Ju/’hoansi in Namibian community-based natural resource management, in the journal Society & Natural Resources

This paper addresses the important issue of trophy hunting in Namibia, among two Bushmen groups, which is often presented as a crucial element in ‘community-based natural resource management’. However, the economic benefits that trophy hunting brings to communities are very limited, and the strong focus on such benefits perpetuates socio-economic inequality based on a global neoliberal environmental discourse, while masking highly problematic issues on the ground, such as postcolonial labour relations and other power structures, e.g. with NGOs and the state.
