This chapter brings together the case studies explored in the book, drawing out their similarities and differences, demonstrating how each serves to generate similar knowledge, practices, and subject-positions that govern relationships between humans and nonhumans. It raises questions about the possibility of “outsideness” to green governmentality, in hopes that there are alternatives and more environmentally just ways of encountering nonhumans. It concludes that the green governmentality explored in the book has been about defining and fixing the appropriate relationships between the human and nonhuman through the lens of science, the practice of biopolitics, the making of subjectivity, and the dominion of the commodity form.

Keywords:   green governmentality, biopolitics
