The increased consumption of goods and services derived from natural resources has resulted in competing uses, increasing scarcity, and destruction of the resources stock. The use of such threatened resources can be institutionally in¯uenced and managed by means of Institutional Resource Regimes (IR). An IR is a combination of ownership, disposition and use rights, and of resource-speci®c protection and exploitation policies. This article presents the theoretical IR concept and analyses the historical development of IRs for the water resource in Switzerland. In particular, it identi®es those historical moments where the IRs actually changed, as well as the entire development trajectory of the IRs for the period 1870-2000.
