|Author||Antonio P. Contreras|
|Dimension||6 x 9 in.|
In most of Southeast Asia, forests are public resources nominally under the control of the state, but rules for their use are becoming increasingly influenced by civil society. The state has allowed this influence to grow, and in some cases, has even encouraged it. This policy on positive engagement with civil society is an acknowledgment of prevailing local and global realities, as well as the sociocultural, political and economic facets of human communities and societies.
THE KINGDOM AND THE REPUBLIC, Forest Governance and Political Transformation in Thailand and the Philippines inquires into the dynamics of state-civil society relations within the context of policy making for the conservation and utilization of forest resources in both countries.
Dr. Contreras, faculty of De La SalleUniversity's Political Science department, compares experiences and lessons from the two countries using the modes of governance framework that he developed.
