Pastoral Commons in the Montenegrin Mountains and processes of Heritization (COMPAS-MED-PAT)


There is a growing scientific awareness that pastoral commons are a positive management regime vis-à-vis society and sustainable environmental governance. Nevertheless, these are undergoing swift degradation processes. Heritagization has important assets that can contribute to solving key problems faced by Mediterranean pastoral commons. Hence the main goals of the project are:

  • To identify and record these commons’ potential natural and cultural ‘heritage’ values (past and present), and
  • To systematically examine risks and opportunities of managing such values in the context of on-going and potential future participatory heritagization procedures.

To achieve this, we are exploring a highland pastoral common of the Southern Dinarides (Montenegro), through a transdisciplinary and multisectorial methodology that will allow us to complete the construction of a European ITN H2020 proposal at the Mediterranean scale with 4 other sites already identified.
