This course examines different theoretical perspectives on environmental governance though the lens of diverse common pool resources such as forests, fisheries, pastures, water, agricultural systems, and oceans. This course uses comparative perspectives to explore how diverse institutions or embedded cultural practices facilitate the ability of certain societies to self-organize, overcome collective action problems, and avoid a tragedy of the commons at different scales. Provides theoretical insights into challenges and opportunities for commons governance in the context of global capitalism and change. This course is identical to SMS 553
