Contributor Notes

D. G. Webster is an associate professor in the Environmental Studies Department at Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH, USA. She is the author of two books, multiple peer-reviewed articles, and a number of successful interdisciplinary research proposals. Her book Adaptive Governance: The Dynamics of Atlantic Tuna Management (2009) posited and tested her vulnerability response framework. It won the International Studies Association's Harold and Margaret Sprout Award in 2010. Her book Beyond the Tragedy in Global Fisheries (2015) explains the evolution of global fisheries governance through a responsive governance lens, showing how fisheries all over the world cycle through periods of effective and ineffective governance in what she calls the management treadmill. She is currently working on her third single-author book Healthy Governance: Reconciling the Environment and Social Justice and a multiauthor graduate-level text titled The Governance Treadmill. Both books will extend her research on responsive governance to non-fisheries contexts.
