Institutional models to resolve Conflicts over Natural Resource Governance: Role of Solidarity Economy

Aruna Pandey1

Abstract: Natural Resource Governance models across the world face the challenge of being able to integrate local, national and global interests through a broad-based economic growth without compromising the integrity of the available natural resource base. Solidarity Economies due to their nature and institutional configuration could possibly be such entities with a potential to address the need for adaptive and inclusive management of natural resources. However, their relevance and feasibility as institutional models that could address economic and political contentions over natural resources is yet to be established. Processes of knowledge production, property rights definitions, Institutional formation, Inclusiveness, Production and distribution of power, networks and Collective µIdeo-scapes¶ play a major role in shaping the role and scope of such institutional models. Through two case studies, the paper approaches two interrelated lines of enquiry: (a) The nature and agency of solidarity economies as institutional tools for negotiation for natural resource dependent livelihood spaces (rights over control and use of natural resources at local levels - µcompeting landscapes2'), and, (b) Scope and empirical relevance of solidarity economies as environmentally sustainable institutional models that address multi-scalar natural resource governance conflicts
