Luc Janssens de Bisthoven (CEBioS' coordinator), recently made a book review of "L'invention du colonialisme vert : pour en finir avec le mythe de l'Eden africain" (EN: "The invention of green colonialism: putting an end to the myth of the African Eden") by Guillaume Blanc. 

In this article, published in MO Magazine, he pleads for a more nuanced view on the so-called ‘green colonialism’ in nature conservation in Africa, as explained by the author of the book.
