Lebanon’s Shouf Biosphere Reserve Transition Zone: Sport Hunters and a Protected Area
Robert Greeley, Visiting Instructor in Arabic, Middlebury College

Protected areas have undergone a powerful and sustained social critique, however, very little of this it addresses biosphere reserves and only a small fraction addresses the zoning practices of biosphere reserves. This talk is based on months of interviews and participant observation with biosphere personnel, police, politicians, Shouf residents and hunters in the transition zone of the Shouf Biosphere reserve. I address the intersections of state and local agendas in creating environmental governance in and beyond the transition zone.
