General Meeting – Thursday, January 20, 7 PM | via Zoom | Ndèye Sokhna Dieng, PhD candidate, University of Victoria

Ndèye Sokhna Dieng is a doctoral candidate in environmental politics. Her thesis is co-supervised by the French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD) and the Alassane Ouattara University (in Côte d'Ivoire). Working at the crossroads of political science, political economy and socio-history, her research focuses on social and political issues related to public policies enacted in Côte d’Ivoire to regain forest cover. These policies emerge in a context of increased deforestation due to cocoa production in the country.
