Democracy and the environment revisited: The case of African fisheries
Göteborgs universitet.
2014 (English)In: Marine Policy, ISSN 0308-597X, E-ISSN 1872-9460, p. 143-148Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article develops and tests three hypotheses concerning the effects of levels of democracy on levels of overfishing in Sub-Saharan Africa. The results show that the more democratic a country is, the more successful it is in protecting marine environments. However, this effect disappears during turbulent times and periods of rapid political change. The analysis also shows that democracy has a stronger effect on environmental performance than do levels of corruption and government effectiveness.
