Deconstructing the discourse on social learning: conceptual and methodological aspects in natural resource management literature

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

This report represents a much-needed meta-analysis in this emerging field and pulls together key research articles on social learning in natural resource management and related fields, such as environmental management. Section one of this publication provides methodological detail and an explanation of how paper selection was undertaken as well as a description of the selected body of works reviewed, i.e., 96 papers published in scientific journals after peer-review. Section two summarises the results of a more specific analysis designed to unveil how social learning is made operational and how the literature approaches it conceptually. In section three interdisciplinary engagement and borrowing practices reported in the selected social learning literature are analysed the implications that emerged from these discussed. In section four methodological aspects. The aim of this last analysis was to unveil methodological choices discussed in the selected literature and reflect upon the epistemological base that underpins the social learning discourse.
