PHD dissertation topic: " Biocultural rights and pluralisms : a study based on the Colombian experience ", under the direction of Véronique Champeil-Desplats
The Andean Bogota Center is interested in questions of biocultural law, legal pluralism and the circulation of ecological norms, taking Colombia as its subject. Biocultural rights are conceived as a bundle of pre-existing rights making it possible to think about the relations between the protection of local communities and the conservation of biodiversity. The Colombian constitutional framework having recently consecrated the figure of nature in jurisprudence, Elise Pic aims to question the capacity of biocultural rights to constitute a gearing between ecological constitutional principles and the various local norms that concern nature.
