Research Project

Linking game theory and structured decision-making for the resolution of conservation conflicts.

The project aims to use game theoretical and structured decision making methods to understand the rules that govern how parties search for solutions to conservation conflicts.

This will use two UK based conservation conflicts as case studies: (1) hen harrier predation on red grouse and upland moor management; and (2) increasing geese populations imposing costs on farming.
