Task
Using the arena model analyse the ‘conflict around neonicotinoid based pesticides’ from the
perspective of a agrochemical company – possible choices BASF, Bayer, Syngenta.
Your work needs to include the following three parts:
– 1,500 words academics essay
– 500 words reflection of on your research process, how you used what lecture materials to
inform your research process, what hurdles you face and how you overcome those.
– An excel sheet that shows your research process, i.e. sources that you found and worked
through, no matter if you did or did not use them in the end. This will be more extensive than
your bibliography and needs to reflect your whole research process.
Coursework Specification Guidance
1. Familiarise yourself with the materials around ‘The Business of Bees’ and the arena model.
The focus should be on the critical analysis, i.e. make sure you understand why the arena
model was used in the paper for stakeholder conflicts, what the model is designed to achieve
and how it can address the stakeholder conflict around pesticides and bee decline.
You should look for material published by the different stakeholders that make up the arena.
2. Identify the arena(s) in which the conflict takes place. This includes identifying the
stakeholders and their motivations and interests.
You should look for academic, industry or NGO sources that discuss the conflicts as well as
the interests and motivations.
3. Identify a company in the agrochemical industry that is involved in the conflict. In the process
you should analyse company materials, as well as additional materials targeted at the
company written by other stakeholders, e.g. NGOs or investors.
You should look for academic, industry or NGO sources that discuss the role of the
agrochemical company of your choosing.
4. Based on the previous steps you should now create conflict arenas from the perspective of
your chosen company, that will enable the company to manage its stakeholder conflicts. For
your analysis pick two arenas that you determine as most relevant to the company.
You should look into the two papers on your reading list for week 3 – regarding the Ash vs.
BAT conflict and the Salmon farming conflict. The arena approach is applied to stakeholder
management in these two papers. Use this as the basis for your modelling.
5. Presentation of your case study. You should present your case study in a clear and coherent
way. Your case should include an explanation of the issue at hand, a justification of why the
company chosen is relevant, an analysis of the company’s stakeholder conflict arenas – focus
on the two arenas that you picked in (4).
