[fr] This thesis aims to contribute to the existing literature around conservation philanthropy through the comparison of two conservation projects. It addresses the subject of private conservation and its major ethical challenges.
First, the literature review analyzes the relations between philanthropy, capitalism and public authorities, as well as the matter of philanthrocapitalism and neoliberal conservation. It goes on about the new ways of protecting the environment and preserving nature that link profit seeking with environmental goals. This theoretical part emphasizes the ethical issues that are the object of concern in the academic literature on the matter.
Secondly, the analysis was conducted to evaluate the ethical challenges for both projects: the Pumalín project in Chile and the Nassonia project in Belgium. The methodology employed to carry it out was qualitative and based on a comparative evaluation grid. The results of each ethical challenge are discussed and compared for both projects in regards to the theoretical part.
The conclusion of this thesis brings to light that all neoliberal projects do not face the same ethical challenges. It also highlights the fact that neoliberal conservation does not have to include market mechanisms to be efficient.
