From actions to words: for a new dialectic of the hunting phenomenon (1997)

Fauna is considered as inalienable State property and no longer res nullius. The 1992 hunting reform divides the territory into hunting areas, the final elements of the Fauna and Landscape Plan. This reform moved from the previous concept of “controlled hunting” to “programmed hunting”, to be carried out with the collaboration of the main stakeholders such as hunters, farmers and environmentalists. The law indicates what the composition of the ATC management bodies should be; within these bodies, the different interests that gravitate on the territory must find common ground, and only through a concrete, open and unprejudiced dialogue it will be possible to reach a compromise that will improve the wellbeing of the entire community and the respect of the rights of future generations.
