Environmental Studies


In the realm of conservation and development projects in protected areas, there is “a lack of European regions in the literature [because of] the relative lack of hardship created by protected areas on this continent” (West, Igoe & Brockington 2006, 258). In this thesis, I demonstrate a particular case study in Northern Greece that exemplifies exactly what the literature is lacking. In Prespa National Park in Northern Greece, there has been a history of conservation and development projects that have altered and reconstructed the region causing the local community within it to adapt to its changing conditions.
