Abstract [en]

Combining historical, social and regulative analysis, this book builds a compelling critique of ‘frontier thinking’ as it continues to form our assumptions about social and environmental organisation – in ways that impact not least the present environmental crisis.

This book systematically identifies the ways in which images of nature and society are formed by the historically developed frontier-oriented narratives which have underpinned much Anglo-American and Anglocentric thought. The book confronts these conceptions at large, showing that they never held empirically, and contrasts them with the situation in northern Europe, where diverging assumptions are integral to this day. Through this juxtaposition, this book illustrates not only the pervasiveness of structures of understanding in steering policy but also the varying traditions regarding how understandings of the environment can be formed.

This study highlights how historical thought patterns, formed for very different reasons than exist today, continue to shape our assumptions about nature, the relation between urban and rural areas and our understanding of ourselves in relation to the environment. This book will be of wide interest to a range of academics and students in the fields of geography, anthropology, environmental studies, sociology, political science and development studies, amongst others.

Abstract [en]

This paper advances the study of metagovernance by examining its spatial horizons in the empirical case of tourism development. Drawing upon Jessop et al.’s (2008) TPSNE framework on territory, place, scale, network and environment for a longitudinal qualitative analysis, the article traces the evolution of tourism metagovernance in northernmost Finland and Sweden over the past 150 years. The shifts from pre-Fordism over welfare state Fordism to the competition state manifest themselves in tourism metagovernance through distinct socio-spatial relationships between the state, tourism stakeholders and society at large. Applying the TPSNE framework provides crucial explanatory insights into processes and drivers of change and continuity in tourism’s sectoral development as part of wider societal and political transformations.

Abstract [en]

Northern Europe is often seen as having a specific relation to nature. In this manuscript, the policy and regulatory frameworks in Norway and Sweden are compared when it comes to the scope for local use that is provided by the regulatory frameworks relating to natural resources. The paper analyzes the legal framework for the use of nature and its resources, including hunting, fishing, and reindeer husbandry, with a focus on the Swedish natural resource legislation in relation to the (corresponding) Norwegian Finnmark Act. The study thereby compares the Finnmark Act and the protection it affords local resource users with that in northern Sweden under general Swedish and municipal regulatory systems.

Abstract [en]

This report provides an assessment of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) under Horizon Europe and the Euratom research and training programme 2021-2025, prepared by a Panel of nine independent experts for the two programme parts separately, with common conclusions and observations on the JRC's performance and future direction as a whole. The Panel's assessment will support the evaluation of the JRC's contribution to the overall research programmes and as the European Commission's in-house science service. The assessment follows almost immediately after the ex post evaluation was completed in 2022. Thus the Panel was asked to evaluate activities under the current research programmes building on the results of the previous programmes. In line with its mandate, this Panel has also looked into what changes the JRC has implemented and what effects they have already had or are expected to have, and what could be further developed to enhance the agility, impact and efficiency of the JRC’s policy support and to ensure EU decision-makers get the best possible scientific advice also in the future.

2023 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This incisive book explores the implications of the nature-culture binary and how it impacts the ways in which we think about nature. Bringing together and building on extensive work from varied fields, E. C. H. Keskitalo maps the many understandings of nature across diverse traditions and histories, and demonstrates that nature relations must be understood in connection to power. Focusing on five key binaries - nature-culture, urban-rural, productivism-landscape, leisure-work, and wilderness-civilization - the book unpacks how discussions and conceptions of nature shape our actions towards nature. It examines the role of classification and categorisation in language, and reflects on how to limit the overuse of natural resources. Looking beyond theory, Keskitalo examines the practical implications of understandings of nature relations on key topics including property systems, globalisation, planning, and management. Rethinking Nature Relations will be an accessible entry point for students and scholars in the social and natural sciences to begin critically examining nature relations. It will also be an invaluable resource for those working in environmental policy, sociology, geography, and development studies.
