International Journal of the Commons Publishes UCL Americas PhD Candidate Ivan Lobo's Article on the Colombian Pacific Region

Publication date:

International Journal of the Commons

Building upon case-based evidence this paper explores the role of leaders in Ecomanglar, a community-based enterprise in the Black collective territory of La Plata-Bahía Málaga in the Colombian Pacific Basin, whose purpose is to provide eco and ethno-tourism services. The paper proposes an analytical framework to understand the role of these leaders based on the interaction of two dimensions: institutional transfer channels and operational capacity. It also analyses leaders as essential ‘brokers’ to initialise and sustain collective action. The findings challenge approaches which view collective action as an emergent decentralised group-oriented outcome. Read the article here.
