Future Forest Governance: Multiple Challenges, Diverging Responses
2015 (English)In: Forest Futures: Rethinking Global Trends – Implications for boreal regions / [ed] Westholm, E., Beland Lindahl, K. och F. Kraxner, Springer, 2015, 83-97 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter analyzes the implications of current global trends in forest governance, with increased complexity leading to the emergence of new conflicts over common-good values between various interests, and the emergence of new policy instruments and alliances. Still however, with such multilevel and policycentric policy-making developing in parallel with growing neoliberal economic agendas worldwide, the degree of sustainable management outcomes in forest governance remains highly dependent on strong states and leadership not least through the European Union to ensure civil-society accountability and counteract asymmetric power relationships.
