tragedy of the commons
Abstract: "In this paper I have nevertheless chosen to follow Otar Brox's recommendation: To apply the CPT as a constructed, analytical tool (while always having the problem mentioned above in the back of my mind). The test of this tool must obviously be whether it can be used a) to detect and explain important empirical differences, or b) to construct viable practical solutions to real problems of a 'commons'. "Being a Saami, working for a Saami research institute, I might be expected to use the CPT to advocate Saami reindeer-management interests. I do not consider my scientific findings 'objective' (in a Weberian sense), and I accept that my reasons for doing research in this particular field, my choice of methods, interview objects etc. to a large extent depends on the fact that I am a Saami, and wish to do research that gains my people."
