Biodiversity Governance in the Tasmanian Midlands and Australian Alps – a preliminary literature review

Hub Publication

The literature review was developed by Sarah Clement, PhD Candidate at Murdoch University. Sarah's PhD research adopts an institutional approach to understanding biodiversity conservation governance and identifying options for reform. The focus of the PhD is on how institutions and actors enable (and constrain) collective action to conserve biodiversity, and respond to drivers and disturbances. The literature review summarises the key concepts, theories, and paradigms that will underpin my research and have influenced its design and methods. Specific information about the study areas, policy context, and the full suite of methods selected for the study are outlined in a ‘Programme of Study’, available on request from Sarah.

The literature review has informed the development of the Program of Study and provides a preliminary outline of the literature that will inform subsequent research as part of the NERP Landscapes and Policy Research Hub. The literature review and a Program of Study were submitted to and approved by Murdoch University as meeting the first PhD candidate milestone.
