Structural Change in Agriculture - TP 11: Cooperative and hierarchical forms of institutional change (SIAG)

Start: August 07
End: April 13

The subproject aims at identifying and explaining the increasing importance of institutional diversity and polycentric governance in agriculture. Therefore, the characteristics of transactions, emerging social interdependencies among different actors and the choice of integrative or segregative institutions will be analyzed. The cultivation of GM crops and the development of GM free zones in Germany as well as the implementation of Natura 2000 regions will serve as an example.
