Crisis in aantocht! : een interactioneel perspectief op crisiscommunicatie [PhD thesis]
Klarenbeek, A. \ 2012
crises - management - social conflict - conflict management - communication - central government - netherlands

Abstract:
De overheid wil klokkenluiders via regels en procedures beschermen. Denk aan het recente wetsvoorstel ‘Huis voor Klokkenluiders’. Toch kan er veel mis gaan. Klokkenluiders lopen bijvoorbeeld het risico dat hun signaal niet wordt opgepikt. Annette Klarenbeek, richtte haar promotieonderzoek op de wijze waarop de klokkenluider zich verantwoordt ten opzichte van de vaak vijandige buitenwereld. Dit deed zij aan de hand van twee geanalyseerde praktijkvoorbeelden uit de crisiscommunicatie Bepaalde actoren die crisis kunnen signaleren en daarover anderen willen waarschuwen worden in haar onderzoek als ‘crisismakelaars’ opgevat. Veelal zitten deze personen met bepaalde interactionele problemen om een crisis aan te kaarten. Iemand die een probleem aankaart kan bijvoorbeeld worden aangezien voor zwartkijker, klikspaan of heethoofd,’ benoemt Annette Klarenbeek. ‘Klokkenluiders moeten duidelijk maken dat het de moeite waard is te luisteren naar wat zij zeggen, dat het waar is wat zij naar voren brengen en vooral dat ze zich verantwoordelijk voelen voor de omgeving.’ Haar studie concentreert zich op crisismakelaars. Dit zijn personen die een misstand zien en die bij anderen willen overbrengen. Kenmerkend voor crisismakelaars is dat zij hun zorgen over een potentiële crisissituatie op eigen initiatief presenteren. Meerwaarde onderzoek. Het onderzoek van Annette Klarenbeek toont aan dat organisaties de communicatieproblemen van crisismakelaars beter kunnen herkennen. Door hier in een vroeg stadium op te anticiperen, krijgt een organisatie beter zicht op hoe een crisis zich kan ontwikkelen. ‘

Fresh fruit and vegetables: a world of multiple interactions : the case of the Buenos Aires Central Wholesale Market (BACWM) [PhD thesis]
Viteri, M.L. \ 2010
sociology - ethnography - markets - wholesale marketing - social interaction - fresh products - vegetables - fruit - argentina - towns

Abstract:
This research explores ethnographically the everyday social interactions between the ‘users’ of a particular marketplace, the Buenos Aires Central Wholesale Market (BACWM). The ‘users’ of this marketplace are the social actors who work there everyday, and who bring and buy fresh produce. These ´users´ are the ´makers´ of the BACWM since, through their everyday practices, interactions and interpretations and knowledge, they socially construct this hub of distribution.

Who rules the waves? : governance and new institutional arrangements in Dutch fisheries management in the context of the European common fisheries policy [PhD thesis]
Hoof, L. van \ 2010
fisheries - netherlands - fishery management - fishery policy - participative management - european union - natural resources - sustainability - governance

Abstract:
Top down government ruling is perceived as a main contributor to the failure of fisheries management. A change in the governance set up, with a more participatory signature and a change in role and position of the state, the industry and society in fisheries management, is seen as the way for fisheries management to become more effective, efficient and equitable in obtaining its economic, ecological and public goals. Luc van Hoof uses in this thesis experiences in Dutch fisheries management with more participatory policy arrangements, and recent developments in EU fisheries and maritime policy, to look at how fisheries governance will evolve in the coming years and how the Dutch lessons can be of use to others. The trend towards a more participatory governance set up of fisheries management is expected to continue. With a changing role of fishers and NGOs in fisheries policy development questions that surface are questions of how to organise participation: who can participate, who makes the rules and who decides? Secondly a major issue to address is that of globalisation, in terms of fishing, processing and trade and regulation. Thirdly, as fisheries governance is changing, the role of science and the role of scientists has to equally be changed from scientific advise supporting (government) policy development towards co-working with a wider group of stakeholders.

Abstract:
Dit proefschrift levert een bijdrage aan de theoretische en empirische uitwerking van het begrip ecologisch kapitaal. Het gaat om een exploratieve studie, gesitueerd in de Noordelijke Friese Wouden in het noorden van Nederland. Om het landschap en de daarin besloten liggende natuurwaarden te beschermen zijn boeren in die regio georganiseerd in de gebiedscoöperatie ‘de Vereniging NFW’. Het proefschrift beschrijft hoe boeren ecologisch kapitaal, oftewel het geheel aan natuurlijke hulpbronnen in en rond de boerderij, waarnemen, benutten en verrijken.

The politics of flood insecurity : framing contested river management projects [PhD thesis]
Warner, J.F. \ 2008
rivers - floods - natural disasters - prevention - protection - risk assessment - risk reduction - river regulation - flood control - water management - projects - politics - water policy - egypt - turkey - bangladesh - netherlands - risk management

Abstract:
The study thus analyses and organises how states oscillate between security logic (‘logic of war’) and non-security logic (‘logic of peace’) in flood security governance. The way floods are managed and politicised are a reflection of how society is organised. Therefore, one should look at flood protection schemes within their social, political, economic context. The study looks at six planned river interventions in five countries, analyses the role of security and risk discourse in conflict and politicisation over river interventions. It finds it is not only state representatives, but also opponents who can effectively ‘speak security’ and play the ‘politics of unease’

Abstract:
De toekomst van de landbouw en nieuwe functies voor en op het landelijk gebied, de voorbeelden liggen voor het oprapen. Het lokale verhaal van (nieuwe) plattelandsbewoners staan centraal in dit proefschrift. Juist daar waar veldwerk gedaan werd, brak mond- en klauwzeer uit. Het onderzoek bracht een wending: uitbreiden met hun verhalen over mkz, hun belevingen, en deze vervlechten in de bredere context van veranderingen op het platteland
