Ecology at the local level: The perception of the key subjects
University of Belgrade, Faculty of Philosophy, Department of Sociology
The paper analyzes the environmental perception of the key actors at the local level, as well as their presumed responsibilities and cooperation in environmental protection. The analysis is based on empirical data obtained through a questionnaire research with representatives of local authorities, civil society organizations, and citizens in Serbia. The analytical aim of the papers is to illustrate the differences in perception of the investigated subjects, starting from the concept of environmentally responsible governance and concerned actors. The paper presumes that mutual cooperation and partnership among the key social actors are needed for adequate environmental protection. However, the main research findings show that actors do not behave cooperatively and that the micro dynamic of their relationship does not generate mutual trust.
