Beyond Polarization

Public Process and the Unlikely Story of California's Marine Protected Areas

Island Press

Beyond Polarization is a story of hope about positive collective action. Written from an insider’s perspective, it tells the story of California’s Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) Initiative—groundbreaking legislation passed after a ten-year public process that left an enduring legacy. The MLPA process provides a blueprint for successful public policy to conserve not just marine life, but any natural resource in contention across jurisdictions. The book is organized by geographical region, each with its unique stakeholders and concerns. Steven Yaffee, an expert on collaborative decision making, explains how its lessons can be applied to similar initiative processes across the country and internationally.
Beyond Polarization offers an optimistic message about the public policy process in a time of civic division: that policymakers, scientists, and local citizens can successfully collaborate to protect natural resources we all have a stake in.
