Bern, NCCR North-South 2007

This paper summarises the trends and debates of the past 20 years or so in the field of Political Ecology (PE). A critical review of the different existing strands of research provides a summary of the relatively diverse and sometimes competing theoretical approaches in this area. Researchers and practitioners engaged in the analysis of human-nature interactions will find this overview useful when selecting comparable case studies and identifying adequate theoretical tools for their work. The paper is complemented by an extensive annotated bibliography and an index of authors by geographical and thematic topics.
