4 Nov 2017

This textbook on case study research (Case Studies in Social-Ecological Research) was first discussed by members of the GCES network on the meeting at Belarusian State Technological University (Minsk-Neharelaje) in May 2015, and then discussed in details on a dedicated meeting in Budapest at Central European University in August 2014. On that meeting textbook development responsibilities have been distributed between the members, and since then the group regularly meets on Skype, with occasional offline meetings in Pskov (November 2014) and Kharkiv (February 2015). The book was completed in winter 2017 and published in September 2017 by Pskov State University; the activity is coordinated by Olga Likhacheva of Pskov State University.

The book consists of three sections: the first two sections discuss concepts, methodological approaches and research tools, and the third one demostrates how the concepts are researched in the field. Most of case studies are coming from research summer schools organised under the OSI ReSET project "Governance of Global Environmental Change: Towards a Multidisciplinary Discussion in Tertiary Environmental Education" in 2012-14 and coordinated by Anton Shkaruba and Ruben Zondervan.

The latest selection round of Jean-Monnet project applications was lucky for Erda RTE: JM project GRASS - EU governance of natural resources: geopolitics, regions and sectors was approved for funding. This 2-year action is led by our Russian partner, Pskov State University, and includes 5 more partners. The research focus is on the development and impact of EU natural resource policies on Belarus and Russia. We will organise 3 seminars exploring biodiversity governance, as well as Arctic and Baltic dimensions of EU natural resource governance, a final conference in Pskov wrapping up our researc findings, and develop at least 4 papers (the ambition is to put together a special issue of a high profile journal), and a policy brief in Russian.
