Webster assessments this framework through the use of it to foretell nationwide positions for 8 situations drawn from the foreign fee for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT). those experiences demonstrate that there's significant variance within the administration measures ICCAT has adopted—both among varied species and in facing a similar species over time—and that a lot of this variance should be traced to vulnerability reaction habit. Little consciousness has been paid to the ways that overseas regimes switch through the years. Webster's leading edge method illuminates the pressures for switch which are generated by way of monetary festival and overexploitation in Atlantic fisheries. Her paintings additionally identifies styles of adaptive governance, as nationwide responses to such pressures culminate in styles of swap in overseas administration.
