Abstract

This essay intends to focus on the characteristic features of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria’s environmental policies and practices. Rojava’s democratic confederalism, as an ideological formant resulting from Abdullah Öcalan's reinterpretation of the historical processes undergone by the Kurdish people, proves to be an institutional technique to “democratize interdependence” that should be established within a community. In alternative to separatist ambitions, that would only fuel an anthropocentric national economy based on exports of oil, gas and food commodities, the Autonomous Administration’s social ecology aims to overcome the hierarchies between both groups and individuals created by the extractive economy, restoring the ancestral concept of a living and sacred Nature, which has been lost.
