Marie Curie - OCHERtop


On 1 June 2021, ddr. Giulia Beltrametti from Torino (Italy) started working at FHŠ UP with the EU funded project OCHER - Owners of a Common Heritage. Commons, Environment and Rights in European Mountains (18th - 20th century). She obtained the prestigious European project Marie-Skłodowska Curie postdoctoral fellowship from the Horizon 2020 scheme, as the only and first project at the University of Primorska (besides InnoRenew) and one of 14 (out of 66 registered) projects in Slovenia, which is why she was invited together with others to talk to the Minister of Science.

The new colleague at UP FHŠ will conduct an interdisciplinary study of forms of collective management of natural environmental resources between anthropology, history and heritage studies and in a comparative perspective between the Karst, Istria, Liguria and Nice in France.

The OCHER project examines the relationship between certain historical forms of collective land and resource management and the current environmental and landscape value of these areas, and raises the issue of access rights to natural resources for future generations. Under the Habitats Directive, which aims to promote natural habitats taking into account local needs, different sites in three European countries (Slovenia, Italy, France) have been selected from the list of Natura 2000 networks for their specific biodiversity for case studies and comparisons. The survey addresses different types of 'collective management institutions' to different extents. In mountain areas, where the conservation and sustainable use of the environment is mainly focused on “people working with nature”, minimum management structures are based on households. A combined historical, anthropological and legal approach is therefore needed to better understand the long-term effects and flexibility of resource use in the environment, to reflect more deeply on the specificities of (collective) entities and the mechanisms of (collective) legal actions and institutions.

OCHER addresses the challenges of historical and juridical anthropology and seeks to contribute to the reflection on new environmental rights that go beyond the human / nature dichotomy by understanding the historical forms of the non-destructive relationship between social and ecological systems. It addresses the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and intends to provide a contextual analysis for future applicative project.
