Institutional Dynamics: Resilience, Vulnerability and Adaptation in Environmental and Resource Regimes
Environmental/resource regimes are dynamic and their changes have been analyzed from a variety of perspectives. However, the fact that some regimes remain relatively unchanged even after becoming ineffective while others experience change or collapse continues to be puzzling. This article uses a framework designed to study resilience, vulnerability, and adaptation in an effort to identify the conditions that lead to changes in environmental and resource regimes.
