Habit, Legitimacy, or Rationality: Explaining Active Non-Participation in North Carolina Fisheries Governance

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

An extensive body of research and political activism following the work of Eleanor Ostrom has significantly influenced the implementation of collaborative natural resource governance arrangements across the world, including co-management of fisheries in the United States. Nevertheless, empirical evidence illustrates that fishers and their communities are increasingly displaced from the fisheries they depend on, which are, at the same time, experiencing substantial degradation. This paper explores a significant barrier to the real utopia of sustainable fisheries governance, the active non-participation of resource dependent communities. Active non-involvement is intentional noninvolvement in formal political activities while participating in informal governance activities. The great emphasis placed on the democratic participation of local resource user groups as necessary for natural resource and environmental sustainability demands a greater focus on who is and who is not participating, and why, as well as the associated consequences. I explored this phenomenon from the perspective of the fisherpeople of Two Rivers, North Carolina. The research for this project utilized a case study method involving three data collection techniques: observations, interviews and document and policy review.
