According to the University of Texas' School of Architecture website, Bjørn Sletto's "current research focuses on indigenous land rights and environmental conflict in the Perija mountains on the Colombia-Venezuela border, and the ways in which these issues articulate with environmental planning and environmental justice in the Lake Maracaibo region. He is also engaged with research on community development in Maracaibo as a Research Associate with the Universidad del Zulia in Maracaibo, Venezuela. Bjørn is still involved with indigenous, participatory mapping as an Affiliated Investigator with the Instituto Venezolano de Investigaciones Científicas in Caracas, Venezuela, and through his teaching and conference activities. His domestic projects include participatory research with the environmental justice organization PODER in East Austin, focusing on children’s perceptions and knowledge of environmental hazards and the planning implications of environmental justice activism in Austin."
