Legal and moral foundations of CITES and Bern conventions
Priorities, conflicts and ambiguities
About the project
The goals of this project are:
- To assess the normative foundations of the supranational framework concerning wildlife management through a critical legal discourse analysis of CITES and the Bern Convention.
- To examine the preparatory work related to the implementation of the Bern Convention and CITES, as well as the legislation in Norway specifically and investigate possible moral ambiguities and conflicting messages.
- To interview approximately 12–15 stakeholders, such as employees of the Norwegian Environment Agency, politicians from different political parties and NGOs.
