Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademic


The etatist governance of the forestry sector and its crisis: Germany vs. Russia Over the past two hundred years, professional state forest services have dominated the forest sectors of important European countries, not least through a hegemonic discourse focusing on “regulated” and “sustainable” silviculture. In recent decades this discourse has been increasingly challenged by the internationalization of forest policy, competing environmentalist discourses and the political weakness of the forest sector faced with growing fiscal constraints. In this context this article compares two significant cases of changing forest governance, examining both top-down reform and the survival strategies used by forest services.
