    This chapter discusses the role of institutions, both formal and informal, in
    ecosystem governance. The role of different forms of knowledge, and the
    ways in which these can be combined, are analysed, as is the role of civil
    society in ecosystem policy processes. Organisational structures, their
    aims, norms and values, are examined and the problems of cooperation between different institutional cultures are analysed. The chapter presents a
    number of Trialogues in the context of sustainability, epistemology, and
    policy processes, and discusses their relevance for ecosystem governance.
    Finally, a number of recommendations for future research are made.
