Environmental Governance and Common Pool Resources - A Comparison of Fishery and Forestry

Michael Faure, Peter Mascini and Jing Liu
Series: Routledge Research in International Environmental Law

This book is one of the results of a project subsidized by the Netherlands Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences on smart mixes in relation to transboundary environmental harm. The project was sponsored within the framework of the Academy project ‘Beyond borders’ (Over grenzen). It consisted of a collaboration between the Erasmus School of Law in Rotterdam and the Faculty of Law of the University of Amsterdam, with collaboration from the Law Faculty of Maastricht University as well.

This book analyses the drivers of specific common pool resource problems, particularly in fisheries and forestry, examining the way in which private and public regulation have intervened to fight the common pool resource problem by contributing to the establishment and maintenance of property rights. It focuses on the various forms of regulation that have been put in place to protect fisheries and forestry over the past decades – both from a theoretical as well as from a policy perspective – comparing the concrete interaction of legal and policy instruments in eight separate jurisdictions.
