In her lecture, Kristina Sehlin MacNeil will talk about what she calls extractive violence, that is direct violence against people, animals and nature in connection to extraction of natural resources. It is a sort of violence that mainly affect people with strong links to their land, such as the Sami people in Sweden and the Aboriginals in Australia. Lecture language: Swedish
