Dr. Carolina Sánchez-De Jaegher is a philosopher and ecofeminist scholar that have dedicated her academic work to environmental ethics and the theory of justice for nature. Her expertise resides in ecosystems ethics and ancestral knowledge(s), Indigenous sacred places: its international legality and the southern epistemologies. She has done most of her field work bridging, comparing and contrasting policies for environmental protection and the emergence of epistemic resistance in the Mapuche communities of South Chile. She is also involved in research with struggles for preserving the tropical forest such as the Indigenous communities of Ecuador, particularly the Sarayaku community and their concept of Kawsak Sacha (Living Forest), Sumak Qamaña and Sumak Kawsay (Buen Vivir). Her teaching philosophy is based on critical thinking for liberation, unlearning and relearning beyond modernity because as Boaventura de Sousa Santos says, ´there can be no global justice without global cognitive justice´.
