Description

Published as Chapter 22 in Handbook on the Geographies of Regions and Territories, Anssi Paasi, John Harrison, and Martin Jones, eds.

Military-to-Wildlife Geographies examines the interplay between territory, law and legal geographies through an exploration of intricate relationship between militarism and conservation as it has played out in Vieques: a municipality island in the unincorporated US territory of Puerto Rico, located about seven miles southeast of the mainland. The chapter is strongly situated in the legal geography literature—namely, it seeks to expose the reciprocal relationship between law and spatiality, uncovering the ways in which law is ‘worlded’ and the world is ‘lawed’.
