My name is Femke Wijdekop. I am lawyer, researcher and publicist, based in the Netherlands. I work as the legal counsel of Stop Ecocide Nederland and am an Earth-centered Law expert at the United Nations Harmony with Nature Network. I am also an associate of Restorative Justice Netherlands, a member of the Project for Integrating Spirituality, Law and Politics, of the Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies network and the International Society for Therapeutic Jurisprudence.
My writings focus on ecocide, the rights of nature, restorative approaches to environmental harms and positive green criminology. My TED Talk gives a good summary of why I work on these themes, and what unites them.
