Conflict and choice in resource management: The case of Alaska

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This book examines the process of policymaking in situations in which the interests, values, and rights of the various actors conflict with one another and suggest contradictory courses of action. Focusing on the problems of resource management in · Alaska's coastal and offshore regions, Dr. Dryzek shows how present mechanisms and analytical techniques for reconciling conflict are inadequate. He explores a number of alternatives to improve the conflict resolution capabilities of both political institutions and policy analysts, and recommends changes that would shift concern from the superficial aspects of competing interests to fundamental questions that are more amenable to reasoned debate.
