Local Commons and Global Interdependence

Edited by:

November 1994 | 272 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Local Commons and Global Interdependence explores the conditions for and possibilities of reaching such agreements. It develops a theoretical understanding of cooperation and discord at local and global levels, focussing on two of the key variables that affect outcomes: the number of actors and the degree of heterogeneity between them. This volume provides a broad-ranging introduction to the theory and theoretical issues involved, combining this with a detailed review of research evidence on how agreements to cooperate are established and maintained.
