  Title Héritage et représentation sociale des ressources naturelles en propriété commune en Vrancea (Roumanie) Type Book Chapter
  Year 2009 Publication Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 77-92  
  Abstract This paper discusses the conflict between property seen as a constituent part of local identity and property as a source of welfare for individuals. The aim of the paper is also to focus on the definition of local identity. The first part illustrates the micro-research that takes place in two rural communities in order to verify constituent elements for defining local identity by applying projective tests (mental maps). The importance of common property in the sustaining of local identity is then examined. Empirical examples generated the following questions: how does social representation of the communities interact with the representation of common property? What does property mean today and what is its role in forming / preserving local identity? How do these representations influence collective actions involved in forest management ? In addition to the institutional analysis approach to commons, which is mainly focused on advocating the viability of Common Pool Resources systems compared with the 'tragedy of the commons' (see Ostrom E., 1990) or the anthropological point of view stressing the embeddedness concept within the social, economic and political context (see Hann, C., 1998), this paper focuses more on collective identity theories. Nevertheless, it represents an attempt to re-open (Stahl 1939; Stahl 1986) the field of commons and community-based institutions for managing natural resources in Eastern Europe within new theoretical frameworks and using new methods of investigation.
