Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU

Abstract

Due to political and social changes, traditional expert-based hierarchical coordination mechanisms (‘government’ settings) are under pressure in nature conservation policy. New network coordination mechanisms, such as communicative or interactive processes of control and forms of self-regulation (‘governance settings’) have changed the role of expert advice in nature conservation policy. . In ‘governance’ settings, the role of expert advice has changed. The aim of the project is to contribute to finding effective solutions to resource dilemmas in nature conservation by enlightening the role of experts and expertise in a diversity of governance contexts
