Description

The aim of this research is to bring together social network analysis combined with other methodologies from experimental sociology and integrated with historical research to undertake an exploratory study into common pool institutions in Central and Eastern Europe.

 

While there are empirical cases about common pool resources located in Western Europe (much of it done under the coordination of Tine De Moor), little is available on common pool resources in Central and Eastern Europe and in the Balkans. Thus, with this project we aim to focus on a smaller region: the Alps‐Adriatic region, located at the cross‐section of Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans, with the aim to gather empirical material and undertake collaborative activities with local stakeholders.

 

This project builds on earlier work undertaken by Romina Rodela and colleagues as published in the edited monograph Soupravljanje naravnih virov: vaške skupnosti in sorodne oblike skupne lastnine in skupnega upravljanja [Co-management of natural resources: the village community and related forms of common property and joint management]
