Svensk samhällsvetenskaplig viltforskning - en kunskapsöversikt

Abstract [en]

The present review addresses the Swedish social science game research, but outlooks are made to both the Norwegian qualitative research about the large carnivore conflicts and when it has been appropriate, looks are also taken towards more international research. The review concerns mainly two major areas of research. The first area deals with research related to hunting and game, in which such research on the economic importance of hunting is analyzed. Here we also find the relatively comprehensive environmental economic research on people’s willingness to pay for different species. The second major area of research concerns the social science research conducted in Sweden (and Norway) around the large carnivores. The conflict surrounding large carnivores naturally dominates among the reviewed studies. But even studies about the media coverage of large carnivores and large carnivore-based wildlife tourism are also covered in this review.
