Bringing together scholars of human geography, environmental sociology, law, economics and international policy from Finland, Russia, Sweden and Germany, this book examines how local communities and enterprises adjust to transition and institutional changes in Northwest Russia.
A unique and important factor of the book is that it analyses the law and legal institutions, focusing on how the actual users of law use or abuse it, in relation to unofficial institutions and the interplay of different interest groups in governing forest and fishery resources. The local view is approached empirically with data gathered through interviews, which then is examined against institutional change at national level and in the global arena.
This genuinely multidisciplinary book shows innovative and hybrid ways of adjusting to change, combining old and new, local and global and providing a holistic view of the Russian economy and a society in transition.
