Spiritual Values in Forest Management Plans

This is working title of the first article for my PhD thesis.

The paper will analyse the incorporation of spiritual values in forest management plans in the Netherlands and in British Columbia (Canada) based on text analysis of 20 forest management plans sampled in both study areas. The paper aims to describe the various dimensions, characteristics and patterns in which spiritual values are represented in the forest management plans at various levels of operational detail. It will also investigate to whose benefit spiritual values are articulated in the plans - the forest's, humans' or both.

I started working on this article in August 2018. A first draft is planned to be ready by the eind of 2018. More information will follow ....
