They use “internationalization,” to capture “nondomestic” sources of influence on domestic policies and problems from environment, trade, development, and other organizations and agencies. These distinctions are important because some pathways may work to reverse asserted “downward” pressures of economic globalization on the ability of domestic governments to develop environmental and social stewardship, but only if strategic decisions follow the “logic” of the different pathways. To assess and elaborate on this 28 The Global Forest Sector framework, we first review economic globalization of the world’s forest sector and then turn to review four pathways through which forest users might travel.

2 International Norms and Discourse Norms can also be an important source of influence. For example, there is now general agreement among many forestry users that three principles must be part of efforts to build “good forest governance”: inclusiveness, transparency, and accountability (Cashore 2009a). These dominant norms, which have emerged through international multi-stakeholder deliberations and intergovernmental negotiations, are often championed by powerful international organizations such as the World Bank and large environmental NGOs.

Section III reviews key domestic indicators that globalization of the forest sector, and forest users, attempt to shape and influence, including formal designations of “protected areas,” extent and rates of deforestation/reforestation, and emergence of new environmental regulatory structures and governance of domestic forest practices. Section IV presents an analytical framework for understanding economic globalization and pathways of “internationalization” that forest users and stakeholders can travel to champion and influence strategic policy objectives.
