Abstract: "This paper attempts to bring together two quite different lines of theoretical development that has been, and still are, very central to the crucial questions of how to govern the use of natural resources in a sustainable way. These two lines of thought might at first glance seem quite unrelated to each other, but as the paper will show, at closer examination they allow themselves to be woven together into a neat fabric that has considerable explanatory powers: In a number of seemingly unresolvable resource conflicts in the modern world, the causes must be sought in deep-rooted societal institutions that lies at the base of modernization itself. The analysis must therefore examine the foundations for these institutions and the necessary remedies might therefore often challenge the vested interests in these institutions."
