Scientific seminar

Social dimensions of forests

Thursday 4 October 2012

This year the scientific seminar will concentrate on social dimensions of forests. The social dimension of forests holds a wide array of aspects, from involvement of local community, and conflicts over use, to global forest governance challenges. Often the social dimension is studied in roughly three areas; environmental and ecological economics, rural and regional economics and society, and institutions and governance. To strengthen this area of research, we touch upon some of the issues in the scientific seminar on 4 October.
