This edited volume comprises contributions to the international conference on the “Scientific Framework of Environmental and Forest Governance – The role of discourses and expertise” which was organised by the Chair of Forest and Nature Conservation Policy of the Georg-August-University in Göttingen/Germany in August 2007. It accounts for the increasing attention of the governance concept in environmental and forest policy research. The volume in detail addresses the role of discourses and expertise within the overall conceptual framework of governance, both from a theoretical and empirical point of view in environmental and forest related policies. It concludes that new modes of governance seem to represent a fruitful environment in which discourses and expertise - and their interactions - can be seen as important aspects for the analysis of policy processes.
