Meer & Schnurr. (2013). The community versus community-based natural resource management: The case of Ndumo game reserve, South Africa. Canadian Journal of Development Studies, 34(4), 482-497.

Written with one of my former MA students, this article investigates the escalating violence directed by community members towards the Ndumo game reserve in South Africa, which has pitted residents against the reserve they are invested in as owners and managers. We argue that the destruction and violence at Ndumo are best understood as an example of communities trying desperately to engage with state- and private-sector-led conservation in the face of continued exclusion.
