Socio-Cultural Dimensions of the Development of Environmental Institutes

Yaroslavl, 2014. 96 рages.

This book* discusses the fundamental obstacle to increasing the effectiveness of sustainable nature conservation practice through a “fine-tuning” of environmental institutes regarding geospatial socio-cultural characteristics. The growth in recent decades of a suite of ethnic measurements has led to supplanting traditional qualitative methods of institutional analysis with quantitative cultural measurements to assess the development of environmental institutes. A preference has been shown for using measurements conceived by Geert Hofstede, together with an additional index, the “stability of property rights”.
This book will be of interest to all those concerned with sustainable development, in particular experts in environmental management practice, institutional and cultural geography.
