Archetype Analysis in Sustainability and Land Governance Research

Short Description

This working group will advance two pillars of GLP’s Science Plan 2016-2021. First, this working group will provide a platform to advance methodologies for analyzing and synthesizing recurrent patterns from contextualized case studies by using the archetype approach. Second, it will advance analysis on land governance including by building bridges to the research community of institutional analysis of the commons.

Goals and Objectives

The specific objectives of this Working Group are:

  1. to consolidate the archetype approach by taking stock of applications, methods, roots, opportunities and current limitations;

  2. to push current methodological frontiers by encouraging methodological debate and cutting-edge applications;

  3. to advance understanding of key sustainability challenges and opportunities by presenting new applications of archetype analysis;

  4. to provide a platform to bridge land system science and institutional analysis/commons research communities to advance case study synthesis methods and analysis of land governance, and

  5. to provide a platform for a next generation of archetype analysis.
