In this challenging volume, the author addresses some key challenges related to the effective and equitable governance of marine protected areas (MPAs). These challenges are explored through a study of 20 MPA case studies from around the world. A novel governance analysis framework is employed to address some key questions: How can top-down and bottom-up approaches to MPA governance be combined?

How can we develop and implement governance approaches that are both effective in achieving conservation objectives and equitable in fairly sharing associated costs and benefits?

People have been horrified by the story of three women in London who were rescued by the police from what was initially described as a case of ‘slavery.’ It has since emerged that they were part of a small political cult for over 30 years, run by a married couple. Dennis Tourish is Professor of Leadership at Royal Holloway, University of London. His latest book, The Dark Side of Transformational Leadership, explores how manipulative leaders can sometimes exercise total control over their followers. Dennis has been interviewed on all the main UK news programmes including Radio 4’s World at One, Sky News, BBC, ITV and BBC World News, to provide expert commentary on a case that has fascinated and appalled the public.
Research from a humanist perspective has much to offer in interrogating the social and cultural ramifications of invasion ecologies.
