About the Authors
  • Attending to the 'Cry of the Earth' requires a critical appraisal of how we conceive our relationship with the environment, and a clear vision of how to apprehend it in law and governance. Addressing questions of participation, responsibility and justice, this collective endeavour includes marginalised and critical voices, featuring contributions by leading practitioners and thinkers in Indigenous law, traditional knowledge, wild law, the rights of nature, theology, public policy and environmental humanities.Such voices play a decisive role in comprehending and responding to current global challenges. They invite us to broaden our horizon of meaning and action, modes of knowing and being in the world, and envision the path ahead with a new legal consciousness. A valuable reference for students, researchers and practitioners, this book is one of a series of publications associated with the Earth System Governance Project. For more publications, see www.cambridge.org/earth-system-governance.

    • Proposes an intercultural and interdisciplinary reflection on common concerns in law and governance, with a focus on Indigenous law and the legal traditions of the 'global south'.
    • Provides a critical study on legal rationales, conceptual frameworks and the evolution of law and governance, taking into account the diversity of legal systems and traditions.
    • Presents new perspectives and highlights the role of environmental humanities in addressing current challenges, with contributions from Indigenous peoples, religious representatives, philosophers, artists, environmental activists, lawyers, diplomats and international civil servants, historians and linguists.
    • Features notable chapters by Algonquin hereditary Chief T8aminik Rankin, Grandmother Marie-Josée Tardif, Mohawk Faithkeeper Kevin Ka'nahsohon Deer, Anishinaabe Prof. Deborah McGregor, philosopher Prof. Matthias Fritsch, and John Crowley, head of research at UNESCO.
