Connie’s research, described in detail on the Land use Governance page, addresses the linkages among diverse local, regional and global priorities for sustainable forest management. It examines both “new” and “old” institutions of forest governance, from market-based initiatives such as forest and carbon certification to sovereign state-based and traditional community-based approaches, to better understand how dynamics of trust and power shape environmental and social policies and facilitate or inhibit desired outcomes. Her methods range from locally focused case studies to large-scale comparative research examining cross-institutional and cross-boundary interactions.
