Community, collective action and common grazing: the case of post-socialist Mongolia
This study examines the use of common grazing in the context of other aspects of pastoral livelihoods. The more a given group of herders find reason to cooperate with each other, the more likely they will overcome the transaction costs of using the commons. Decollectivization has seen the re-emergence of autonomous cooperation among herders.
