Abstract and Keywords

This chapter reviews current literature on the use of collaborative processes in ecosystem management. Relevant theoretical frameworks for understanding environmental conflict resolution (ECR) collaborative processes and stakeholder partnership success are reviewed from political science, sociology, alternative dispute resolution (ADR), and systems engineering. The chapter provides an overview of existing and emerging models, techniques, and governance institutions for implementing public involvement processes (e.g., policy dialogues, collaborative learning). Conceptual progress in developing evaluation criteria for assessment of these collaborative processes and programs is summarized, followed by a narrative review of relevant empirical evaluation studies. The chapter concludes with commentary on prevailing trends in the literature and promising directions for future research.

Keywords: alternative dispute resolution, ADR, collaborative processes, collaborative learning, environmental conflict resolution, ECR, ecosystem management, public involvement, stakeholder partnerships
