Heet en niet te blussen : Conflicten als performatieve communicatiesystemen, een Luhmanniaans perspectief
Pellis, A. ; Duineveld, M. ; Vries, Jasper de; Kil, Ad - \ 2019
Tijdschrift voor Communicatiewetenschap 47 (2019)2. - ISSN 1384-6930 - p. 104 - 104.
Er is veel geschreven over conflicten en de wijze waarop we ze kunnen voorkomen, temperen of in goede banen kunnen leiden (zie o.a. Parker Follett, 1942; Mastenbroek, 1993; Aarts, Steuten & Van Woerkum, 2014; Glasl, 2015). In de gangbare benadering worden conflicten met name geobserveerd middels een diagnose-behandelcombinatie waarbinnen gezocht wordt naar de oorzaken en gevolgen van conflicten, en consistent wordt uitgegaan van een onderscheid tussen veroorzakers en conflictobjecten. De veroorzakers zijn dan twee of meer actoren (mensen, organisaties, staten, etc.) en het conflictobject kan van alles en nog wat zijn: landsgrenzen, kapitaal, natuurlijke hulpbronnen, of de kleur van de gordijnen in een nieuw huis. Als conflicten worden gezien als het resultaat van relaties tussen twee of meer actoren die een onenigheid hebben over bepaalde conflictobjecten, dan is het geen verrassing dat de focus van onderzoek en de daaruit voortkomende aanbevelingen voor interventie zich van oudsher op de veroorzakers, hun relaties en de conflictobjecten richt. Uit dergelijk onderzoek concludeert men dat er bemiddeld moet worden tussen twee partijen, en/of dat er iets gedaan moet worden aan de conflictobjecten; zoals het verstevigen van grenzen, het eerlijker verdelen van kapitaal, het vermijden van het gebruik van bepaalde hulpbronnen of het sluiten van een compromis over de kleur van de gordijnen.

Will future tourism become sustainable?

sustainable tourism - sustainable development
Change is necessary, as it is unlikely tourism can continue to expand as it has been doing for the past decades. Maybe technology will solve some of the problems, but it is also important to stay critical and act on time. This lesson is part of the WageningenX MOOC called 'Sustainable Tourism: Society & Environmental Aspects'

Reality effects of conflict avoidance in rewilding and ecotourism practices–the case of Western Iberia
Pellis, Arjaan - \ 2019
Journal of Ecotourism (2019). - ISSN 1472-4049
Conflict avoidance - ecotourism - rewilding - Social Systems Theory - Western Iberia

This paper explores the performative role of conflict avoidance in enabling rewilding and ecotourism visions in Western Iberia, one of the first European rewilding pilots situated in Northeast Portugal. Conflict avoidance is delineated here as a process based on expectations of potentially enduring, mutually contradicting and heated communications. In line with and contributing to a Social Systems Theory of conflicts, various examples of conflict avoidance are described as either a form of proactive anticipation to conflicts as risks or as a reactive adaptation to conflicts as dangers. The findings illustrate various forms of conflict avoidance in terms of silence, materialisation, co-optation, and ad hoc manoeuvring. These forms are subject to different goal dependencies of rewilding and ecotourism visions. Furthermore, these findings support a more critical discussion of the highly co-productive role of latent conflict processes in evolving rewilding and ecotourism practices in places like Western Iberia.

The Persistence of Tightly Coupled Conflicts. The Case of Loisaba, Kenya
Pellis, A. ; Pas, Annemiek ; Duineveld, M. - \ 2018
Conservation and Society 16 (2018)4. - ISSN 0972-4923 - p. 387 - 396.
Contributing to the debate on the multidimensional nature of resource-based conflicts in political ecology, and building upon Niklas Luhmann’s Social Systems Theory, we have studied the persistent and shifting nature of conflicts as well as their dependencies on other conflicts in and around Loisaba conservancy. This private conservancy is situated in northern Laikipia (Kenya). For a long time, its management was focused on wildlife conservation, high-end tourism and ommercial ranching. Developments and events at neighbouring ranches and community conservation areas shifted this focus. Decades of more or less peaceful regional co-existence has recently transformed into conflictual, sometimes even violent situations. At first sight, these emergent conflicts
seem related to recurrent droughts, competing resource dependencies, national elections, or incitements by wealthy and influential politicians. For this study, however, we conceptualise conflicts as particular kinds of discourses that emerge, exist and change. This happens not only according to their own internal logics, but also through their dependencies with other conflict discourses. In this paper, we characterise the relations between conflicts on a range from tight to loose couplings and introduce three related forms of coupling (overpowering, resisting, and resonating) to provide a more detailed understanding of how conflicts may interrelate.
Conservation tourism and landscape governance in Kenya: : the interdependency of three conservation NGOs
Pellis, A. ; Lamers, M.A.J. ; Duim, V.R. van der - \ 2017
In: Ecotourism in Sub-Saharan Africa / Backman, Kenneth F., Munanura, Ian E., London and New York : Routledge - ISBN 9781138637962 - p. 36 - 50.
Tourism plays an increasingly important role in the way non-governmental organisations govern landscapes, especially in decentralised conservation contexts in developing countries. In this paper, we examine the role of three key conservation organisations (the African Wildlife Foundation, the African Conservation Centre and the Northern Rangelands Trust) in landscape governance in Kenya. Our analysis of organisational strategies and practices between 2007 and 2013 demonstrates how conservation NGOs, as intermediators of various forms of conservation tourism, are subjected to multi-actor interdependencies. Our findings underpin the role of mismatching scale-making that not only hampers organisational objectives, but also contributes to a dynamic reshaping of conservation tourism landscapes. We illustrate our approach to landscape governance in the context of the Naibunga Conservancy Trust where multiple conservation NGOs are required to deal with overlapping and competing orderings.

Rewilding is discussed here as a relatively new but contested discourse and practice in Europe. Rewilding represents an additional, entrepreneurial and somewhat bold strategy in biodiversity conservation, which aims for a return to more natural processes in places that have predominantly become shaped by human interventions. By allowing more space for nature to do its ‘own’ work, prominent organizations like Rewilding Europe propose to experiment with forms of passive management after initial interventions have secured basic conditions for ‘natural’ processes to re-occur in pilot areas across Europe. This approach is considered promising for local conservation initiatives and nature entrepreneurs (e.g. ecotourism), yet challenges traditional land use practices – including traditional biodiversity policies – in the light of the unforeseeable outcomes of rewilding experiments.
