ZEF theme: Governance


ZEF’s research on governance deals with the governance of social, economic, and natural resources. Producing, accessing and controlling these resources are the driving forces for inclusion and exclusion processes— and therewith the guiding principles of every society. Social resources not only shape the communal life, but also the bio-physical environment that enables people to survive. ZEF research therefore includes topics such as 'social security', 'livelihood strategies', and 'social resilience'.
