Framing Bioinvasion: Biodiversity, Climate Change, Security, Trade, and Global Governance

Framing Bioinvasion: Biodiversity, Climate Change, Security, Trade, and Global Governance Global Governance 16 (2010), 103–120 Framing Bioinvasion: Biodiversity, Climate Change, Security, Trade, and Global Governance Peter Stoett This article introduces the complexities of framing the policy debate over invasive alien species or, more generally, bioinvasion.

Abstract

Global Governance 16 (2010), 103–120 Framing Bioinvasion: Biodiversity, Climate Change, Security, Trade, and Global Governance Peter Stoett This article introduces the complexities of framing the policy debate over invasive alien species or, more generally, bioinvasion. It suggests that there are six principal framing conceptualizations that have emerged or are gaining steam and credence: biodiversity and conservation; climate change and globalization; human security; “natural national security”; market failure; and the commons and global governance. Although the biodiversity approach dominates the international discourse at present, it presents a partial and hence distorting picture. Over time, as the problem of bioinvasion compounds, the inadequacy of the biodiversity frame will become generally apparent and so the other framings will gain in cur- rency. Ultimately, bioinvasion must be viewed as a policy challenge for global environmental governance and justice. The author concludes by raising the limited possibility of developing an International Convention on Invasive Alien Species. KEYWORDS: global environmental governance, in- vasive species, framing, biodiversity.
