Article
Full-text available
New laws promoting species conservation in protected sites are often contested by local communities. Conflicts between the laws and community norms may explain this; yet the literature on normative conflicts has still not examined such laws-norms conflicts. It has moreover been inconclusive regarding the (negative or positive) relationship between...

However, current literature has focused mainly on the conflicts between the legal and local spheres, without paying much attention to the local dynamics in the response to biodiversity conservation laws. This multi-method research, which took place in Natura 2000 sites in the interior Alent...

Organizations’ environmental performance has come increasingly under scrutiny given the need for sustainable, low-carbon economies. Workers’ pro-environmental behaviors (PEBs) can contribute to greener operations, but research on workplace PEBs is still an emerging field.

This article examines how residents in Natura 2000 sites in Southern Portugal 'imagine themselves' as publics participating in biodiversity conservation. Through nine focus groups (n = 49) it seeks to understand whether and how these self-imaginations reproduce and/or resist experts' highly shared, hegemonic, representations across two dimensions:...
