Vol. 3 No. 1 (2019)

We have published thirteen articles on the special section The economies, ecologies, and politics of social forestry in Indonesia. The numerous social forestry permits being signed across Indonesia provide a timely area of inquiry. Evidence-based studies are still lacking on the processes and effects of the current policy imperative. Can social forestry achieve its promise of alleviating poverty, empowering communities, and improving forest governance? And if so, in what ways? Additionally, few studies are available on social forestry's role in responding to the broader and more contemporary issues such as climate change mitigation and adaptation, forest landscape and conservation, and green economy.

Vol. 1 No. 1 (2017)

We have published in available online since April 29, 2017. As the reader will find in this inaugural issue, we have compiled an initial set of studies across multiple methods and geographies that help to set the terms of future editions. We examine: historical political ecologies of land use around opium cultivation in the uplands of Thailand; emerging governance regimes of corporate social responsibility in Myanmar; the capacity of new state institutions to manage land conflict in forest estate lands in Indonesia; close analysis of forest harvesting and management in a mangrove forest in Malaysia; and, an economic valuation of non-timber forest products in a national park in Indonesia. There is much to choose from and much more to delve into that. We hope that this issue serves as an impetus to engage in these timely themes and further encourages new ideas for submissions.
