Restoring the Great Lakes: Institutional Analysis and Design
Forty-three polluted sites on the Great Lakes are undergoing remedial actions to restore beneficial uses. The program is initiated by the International Joint Commission and developed by the Governments of Canada and the United States in collaboration with their relevant province and states. In each of these sites, called Areas of Concern, multiple stakeholders are formulating and implementing Remedial Action Plans, under a variety of institutional arrangements. These differing arrangements and their outcomes are examined with the aid of survey and documentary evidence. The successful plans are those with well designed institutions. The theory of common property is reviewed in order to explain and analyze these institutions' designs.
