Hi!! My name is Michael Schoon. This website is a brief synopsis of my academic work – both my research and my teaching. In the landing pages on this site, I detail my research in five core areas – Collaborative Governance, Complex Adaptive Systems Science, Resilience and Robustness, the Tragedy of the Commons and common-pool resource dilemmas, and Transboundary or large-scale conservation. Basically, my work is all about sustainability, collaboration and the resolution of environmental dilemmas. In particular, I focus on the sustainability challenge facing all of us as we leap further into the Anthropocene – how do we better match the scale of governance to the scale of the environmental issue. How do we navigate across political borders and boundaries at all levels, from those between individuals to those between nations?
I’ve tried to be as up-to-date as possible and as open in terms of providing access to my publications as I can be. Please contact me by leaving comments on my site or via email: michael.schoonATasuDOTedu.
I hope that you enjoy what’s here. Please let me know.
