The Governance unit will develop a comprehensive understanding of the key formal and informal features of natural resource governance from the local scale through to national and supranational scales. The unit will commence by developing a conceptual understanding of governance (as distinct from government) and situating this understanding in the context of natural resource management. It will then provide a comprehensive understanding of community-based resource management and common-property resources by using an intensive case study approach. The unit will then consider the operation of national governance, focusing on the interplay of state and non-state actors in the design and implementation of environmental policy. Intensive case-study analysis will again situate this understanding and illuminate the critical role of informal as well as formal institutions of governance. Finally, the unit will consider the emergence of supra-national governance, including the role of international treaties and conventions and the emergence of supra- national institutions designed to attend to the management of ecosystems at large scales. Critical analysis of case studies will again be accompanying this analysis.
