Abstract:Due to the problem of governing the commons, the multilevel as well as multiactor character of governing these, has become more obvious. The goal of this case study is to predict the types of interaction concerning the cooperation of nature organizations in the Vecht river basin, as well as finding problems which may impede cooperative interaction. This will be done by using the actor characteristics motivation, cognitions and capacity and power, from the Contextual Interaction Theory. In addition the theory’s predictive qualities in this case, which is beyond the theories usual domain, were tested. It was found out that the theory’s predictions do not correspond with the types of interactions between the nature organizations. In general there was no cross-border cooperation to be found, which is due to a lack of information about the respective cross-border organizations, as well as a lack of resources.
