What explains the implementation of the policy in the Norwegian Barents Sea Management Plan?

Ecosystem based management is an ambitious concept that has been notoriously difficult to implement. It should be time to investigate systematically under which conditions successful implementation is possible. Implementation theory offers a platform for this. Gunnar Sander will present an analysis of what explains the results when the policy in the Norwegian Barents Sea Management Plan was put into practice. He will also present ideas for how studies of a Canadian case (the ESSIM process) can be another building block in developing conditional theories for implementation of EBM.
