Recent scientific development and politico-institutional experiences related to the conservation of the South-American Pantanal are explored in this book in relation to what is happening in other tropical wetland areas of international importance such as the Everglades in North America and the Okavango in Africa, as well as considering the European experience. An interdisciplinary group of authors examines the need to establish a constructive dialogue between scientists, policy-makers and local stakeholders and outline a future research agenda, including consideration of the impacts of climate change and the pressures of regional development, for wetland management.

Those who control water, hold power. Complicating matters, water is a flow resource; constantly changing states between liquid, solid, and gas, being incorporated into living and non-living things and crossing boundaries of all kinds. As a result, water governance has much to do with the question of boundaries and scale: who is in and who is out of decision-making structures? Which of the many boundaries that water crosses should be used for decision-making related to its governance? Recently, efforts to understand the relationship between water and political boundaries have come to the fore of water governance debates: how and why does water governance fragment across sectors and governmental departments? How can we govern shared waters more effectively? How do politics and power play out in water governance? This book brings together and connects the work of scholars to engage with such questions. The introduction of scalar debates into water governance discussions is a significant advancement of both governance studies and scalar theory: decision-making with respect to water is often, implicitly, a decision about scale and its related politics. When water managers or scholars explore municipal water service delivery systems, argue that integrated approaches to salmon stewardship are critical to their survival, query the damming of a river to provide power to another region and investigate access to potable water - they are deliberating the politics of scale. Accessible, engaging, and informative, the volume offers an overview and advancement of both scalar and governance studies while examining practical solutions to the challenges of water governance.

The role of local people in contemporary nature conservation practices is often poorly understood or neglected. This book, therefore, examines questions of local participation at the nature-society nexus within national parks in the transitional context of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The post-1990 reconfiguration of conservation paradigms in this part of the world has re-opened various age-old debates about the protection and administration of natural heritage. Further complicating the situation has been the introduction of market-based principles, which has embedded the entire process in broader dynamics of neoliberalization and the capitalist space economy. Providing an integrated perspective on why, how and for whom nature conservation practices have been implemented in CEE, this book sheds further light upon the mechanisms through which such practices both redefine and are affected by the everyday life of people living in national parks. Offering a critical global review of the environmental motivations and power interests behind the creation of national parks, as well as a typology of the relations between local people and the dynamics of nature protection in them, this work challenges the dichotomy between developed and developing countries that pervades much of the academic literature on nature protection. Author Saska Petrova highlights the lessons that can be learnt by applying the experiences of local community participation in environmental management in CEE to other locations undergoing major systemic change in their environmental governance practices, such as the 'low carbon transition' that is currently unfolding at a global scale.

Das für Gesellschaften ebenso brisante wie zentrale Thema Wettbewerb wurde bislang der Ökonomie respektive der politisch-medialen Rhetorik überlassen. Soziologische Klassiker (Simmel, Weber, Bourdieu u. a.) bieten Anknüpfungspunkte für eine Wettbewerbssoziologie. Deren Intuitionen aufgreifend besteht die „Soziologie des Wettbewerbs“ aus einer sowohl sozialtheoretisch fundierten als auch empirisch orientierten Feldanalyse. Vier soziale Felder/Märkte und die dort vorfindlichen Praktiken werden analysiert: 1. Bildung (Exzellenzinitiative), 2. Finanzmärkte (Großbanken), 3. Sport (Doping) und 4. Liebe (Onlinedating). Daraus resultiert eine theoretisch und empirisch fundierte Wettbewerbskritik, die die aktuellen ideologischen Überfrachtungen dekonstruiert und kritisch auf die Auswirkungen bezüglich Subjektpositionen, Leistung und Erfolg sowie auf Mechanismen der Re- und Destabilisierung eingeht. Die Überlegungen münden in ein Nachdenken über die Bedingungen guter Lebensführung in Zeiten einer Wettbewerbsgesellschaft.
