Summary
This book argues that legal geography provides new insights into contemporary conservation challenges. Despite unprecedented efforts, we are facing an extinction crisis, and in situ protected area programs are falling short. This book discusses the protected area phenomenon and calls for changes to current approaches, informed by legal geography an inter-disciplinary area focused on the intertwined peopleplacelaw dynamics that enable, or disable, effective management practices. The book examines two protected area types: World Heritage Sites, where places of outstanding universal value are protected for all humanity, and Ramsar protected wetland sites, one of the first global environmental protection initiatives. Using case studies from the Australasian region (Australia, the Pacific and Southeast Asia), it reveals how current approaches can be improved by taking into account the peopleplacelaw nexus embedded in legal geography research. Josephine Gillespie is an academic, and former lawyer, based at the University of Sydney, Australia. She is an environmental legal geographer interested in the complex intersection of geography and law. Her research investigates environmental protection and humanenvironment geographies throughout Australia and the Asia-Pacific
