  1. Environment, Society and Natural Resource Management

    Environment, Society and Natural Resource Management

    Edited by Geoffrey Lawrence, Vaughan Higgins, Stewart Lockie
    As greater significance is placed on the relationship between people and their environment it is increasingly acknowledged that few environmental problems can be solved without considering the social context in which they arise. But what does it mean to incorporate the ‘social’ and what types of social sciences are needed? This incisive book critically reviews the theoretical perspectives that underlie social scientific contributions to natural resource management and argues for both a greater social science presence and for conceptual and methodological clarity within the social sciences themselves.

  3. Social Discourse and Environmental Policy

    Social Discourse and Environmental Policy

    Edited by Helen Addams, John Proops
    As governments and the wider public become increasingly concerned about environmental problems, the necessity for competent environmental policies is growing. The contributors to this highly original book attempt to demonstrate how the use of Q methodology can result in the development of more effective, socially sensitive, environmental policy options. The book highlights the history of Q methodology, a technique for systematically studying the subjectivity of individuals, and provides a brief yet comprehensive account of its theory and a detailed guide to the various stages of a Q study. The methodology is then applied, to explore the discourses concerning the relationship between society and a diverse range of environmental issues including, environmental protest, civil aviation policy, forest policy and land use options.

    Social Environmental Research in the European Union

    Michael R. Redclift, Elizabeth Shove, Barend van der Meulen, Sujatha Raman
    This book explores the making of international social science, and the parts which academics, policymakers and research managers play in creating European social environmental research. The authors present and analyse a complex picture of overlapping institutional interests within six countries of the EU – The Netherlands, UK, Spain, Greece, Finland and Austria – and develop new models with which to capture the transnational interaction of researchers and funding agencies. The contributors consider the practical and intellectual challenges facing European research managers charged with the task of building a community of social researchers willing to engage with a policy-relevant environmental agenda. The book analyses the shape and character of European social science and the values and commitments of research activity on the environment. Learn More

  12. Negotiating Environmental Quality

    Negotiating Environmental Quality

    Markus A. Lehmann
    Using strategic game theory, this innovative book carefully reviews the detailed negotiations between industry, regulating agencies, and third parties in environmental policy implementation. The analysis is underpinned by an institutional comparison of German and American administrative and environmental law. After presenting an alternative model to address real-world bargaining, Markus Lehmann provides an economic rationale for the use of case-to-case regulation, a policy instrument traditionally neglected if not rejected by environmental economists. He discusses how and to what extent the shortcomings of this instrument can be overcome by a specific institutional design. He presents a clear-cut policy conclusion which is shown to be quite robust under different model structures and varying sets of assumptions. Learn More

  18. Environmental Regulation and Competitive Advantage

    Environmental Regulation and Competitive Advantage

    David Hitchens, Esmond Birnie, William Thompson, Ursula Triebswetter, Paolo Bertossi, Luciano Messori
    This study focuses in detail on the environmental compliance/competitiveness relationship with respect to the regulation of packaging waste. An important and innovative feature of the study is its emphasis on backward and forward linkages. An entire supply chain is considered: packaging manufacturers and suppliers, food processors and the food retail sector, to study the competitive effects of environmental standards on manufacturing companies and the vertical links and supply responses. A variety of regulatory regimes is represented by including within the study companies from Germany, Italy, the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. While it is of note that the relatively strong regulation in Germany has indeed had effects on company behaviour, there is no evidence that environmental regulations hindered companies from achieving competitive performance.
