Abstract: "The research project on African inland-wetlands focuses on common property theory and the New Institutionalism in economics, social anthropology and political science that deals with institutional changes and conflict. The main goals are twofold: First, the project deals with the design principles that Elinor Ostrom has identified through the analysis of long-enduring institutions for governing sustainable resources, notably of the common property-kind. Second, the project deals with the destruction of these resources that are held and regulated in common, the changes in local institutions and the conflicts characteristic for these areas today"
