Faculty and Staff News
Along with affiliated law professor Vicky Meretsky and Matt Castelli, '15, Professor Rob Fischman published a study of special regulatory exceptions to one of the principal statutory prohibitions designed to protect endangered species under federal law in the Yale J. on Regulation. Inspired by private-ordering scholarship and the work of IU's Nobel Laureate Eleanor Ostrom, they looked for evidence of collaborative governance in the rules tailored to the specific risks to and habitat for imperiled animals. The results offer clear lessons for better implementation of the Endangered Species Act. They also contribute to the collaborative governance literature, which is long on theory but short on quantitative evidence. The article makes the paradoxical claim that less stringent regulations may actually improve the prospects for successful conservation, (with the big) "if" they are properly tailored to the biological conditions necessary for recovery. Satisfying the big "if" will require federal agencies to 1) better define what recovery will actually require on the ground and in the water, and 2) more firmly establish credible enforcement consequences for parties that fail to collaborate in good faith.
