Health is commonly experienced and understood in a variety of ways, including the absence of disease, but also more positively, as functional vitality or as a resource. Scholarly debates about the definition have evolved around a binary opposition between health as a natural phenomenon and health as a socially constructed category. However, when ex...
Conference Paper
The (experimental) research on community management of natural resources focuses on social dilemma situations between individuals. However, in most real-life situations natural resources are not only shared between individuals living in a community, but also between individuals belonging to different subgroups within the same community. For instanc...
Article
There is considerable controversy over how to define the concept of health, but the realization that it carries a positive connotation beyond the absence of disease has gained ground. Increasingly, ‘health’ is used as a metaphor to refer to a desirable, ‘sustainable’ state of ecosystems and this broad conceptualization has given rise to a several v...

In recent years, the term Ecohealth has gained currency in Japan, as reflected in the establishment of the Japanese Association for Ecology and Health in 2013.

Background: An ecological perspective was prominently present in the health promotion movement in the 1980s, but this seems to have faded. The burden of disease the developing world is facing cannot be addressed solely by reductionist approaches.

Aimed at addressing the problem of emerging infectious d...

We draw on empirical results from three case studies of property rights change across forest and fisheries ecosystems in central Vietnam to investigate the circumstances under which collective property rights may make sense. A generic property rights framework was used to examine the bundles of rights and associated rights holders in each case, and...

Article
China's household registration system is the central element in a policy of rapid industrialization with low urbanization. Figures on the non-agricultural population show that the system was initially successful, but less so during the 1980s. As a result, a number of reforms were introduced, which are described in some detail here. The registration...

The main target was output maximization through high accumulation; strong emphasis was put on the growth of heavy industry, while agriculture was neglected and even discriminated against [Chan 1994]. In order to mak...
