  1. Facing Strategic Narratives: In Which We Argue Interactive Effectiveness. [REVIEW]Niels Röling & Marleen Maarleveld - 1999 - Agriculture and Human Values 16 (3):295-308.
    The multiple commons is an important context in a world facing the eco-challenge. The platform for land use negotiation is a perspective concerning the good governance of the multiple commons. Platforms are devices or procedures for social learning and negotiation about effective collective action. They create collective decision making capacity at eco-system levels at which critical ecological services need to be managed. Taking platforms seriously as an option for designing a more sustainable society assumes a belief in the human capacity (...)

    Transforming Extension for Sustainable Agriculture: The Case of Integrated Pest Management in Rice in Indonesia. [REVIEW]Niels Röling & Elske van de Fliert - 1994 - Agriculture and Human Values 11 (2-3):96-108.
    Investment in agricultural extension, as well as its design and practice, are usually based on the assumption that agricultural science generates technology (“applied science“), which extension experts transfer to “users“. This model negates local knowledge and creativity, ignores farmers' self-confidence and social energy as important sources of change, and, in its most linear expression, does not pay attention to information from and about farmers as a condition for anticipating utilization.In practice, farmers rely on knowledge developed by farmers, reinvent ideas brought (...)

    Information Technology From a Knowledge System Perspective: Concepts and Issues. [REVIEW]Niels G. Röling & Paul G. H. Engel - 1990 - Knowledge in Society 3 (3):6-18.
    Studying knowledge utilization and related processes calls for a conceptual framework. We look at the actors that engage in these processes in a specific field of human activity, and the interfaces and linkages between them, as a Knowledge and Information System (KIS). Although this KIS perspective originates from agriculture it also can be applied to other knowledge domains. Evidence gathered shows that for a KIS to be effective the actors (e.g., researchers, extensionalists, and clients) must act synergically. This inspired us (...)
