Multiple Interactions and the Management of Local Commons

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    We provide a model in which relatively isolated communities can successfully manage local commons informally in circum- stances where less isolated communities could not do so. The reason for this is the non-anonymous nature of many interactions between the members of an isolated community. Such communities may be able to use these multiple interactions to enforce informal restrictions on the usage of local commons.
