This is volume is still being published. As contributions become available we will post them here. The special issue is edited by Rodd Myers, Christian Pilegaard Hansen (Unversity of Copenhagen) and Vasudha Chhotray (University of East Anglia).
The concept of ‘access’ is about who has the ability to gain, maintain and control the ability to benefit from things. It is inherently intertwined with notions of power, and evermore important as environmental governance regimes seek to reshape the ways that people and nature interact with one another. In this special issue, we revisit the notion of ‘access’ in order to demonstrate not only the current state of knowledge of access, but also novel approaches to theorising access and applying the concept to natural resource governance and politics.
Due to publication restrictions, the final formatted versions of papers will not be posted here unless permission as granted by the publisher. Yes, we realise the irony of making a special issue on access stuck behind paywalls. For most of the authors, their contributions were unfunded and therefore the budgets to make the volume and articles open access was not always available. As much as possible, we attach versions as permitted by publication restrictions, but this is ultimately up to each individual author.
The whole volume will comprise Society & Natural Resources Volume 33, Issue 2, published in early 2020.
