Conservation Policies as Local Development Policies: The Case of the Italian National Parks
After briefly discussing the extent and features of Italian national parks, this paper takes some steps toward building a conceptual system for conservation policies in national parks where cultural capital as well as natural capital is subject to conservation. It argues that in protected territories where human landscapes predominate over natural ones, conservation policies ought to be conceptualised as development policies. Constraining property rights on local resources - which is the conventional view on conservation policies - should be set in the context of a more broadly encompassing approach whose key element is the regulation of the development trajectories of local systems.
