Contents Part I. Background -- Environmental pollution as a problem of collective action -- Dutch approach: self-regulation as a policy concept -- Actor's perspective on collective action -- Part II. The survey -- Preference orderings and measurement -- Rational choice -- Consistency of motives and preferences -- Non-equivalence of the cases -- Reported behaviour -- Part III. Conclusions: theory and policy -- Do people accept self-regulation policy? -- Do people agree with the environmental ethos? -- Moral commitment and rational cooperation -- Reciprocity and cooperation in environmental dilemmas -- Assessing self-regulation policies.
Summary It has been assumed that mere awareness of the causes of environmental degradation will not motivate citizens to reduce pollution. Here the authors counter-argue that most citizens are willing to contribute voluntarily towards safeguarding the environment, but that their willingness depends on the social context of the problem they face.
