##The forest behind a thicket of rules. Transnational law and local legal practice in the Argan Forest (Morocco)
Grand development concepts are judicialized in international conventions and other transnational legal documents. These legal versions of development concepts affect local legal conditions in many ways and interact with them in the context of development cooperation. In a case study from Southwest Morocco particular aspects of this process are discussed with respect to local conflict management. The focus is on the activation of local potentials for sustainable development, environmental protection and the fight against poverty which are induced by development cooperation.##
