Conducted jointly with his colleagues Wolfram Dressler (Partner Investigator, Wageningen University, Netherlands) and Michael Pido (Partner Investigator, Palawan State University, Philippines), the research project aims to understand the social mechanisms by which access to the benefits of transnational seafood commodity chains in the Asia-Pacific are gained, maintained and controlled. Therefore the researchers use a conceptual framework that focuses on key social relations of gender, class and ethnicity, and the key societal changes of land-use change, migration and conservation. This project offers a novel research framework for a pressing cluster of economic, environmental and social challenges in the Asia-Pacific, and will inform research and policy for poverty reduction, economic development, environmental management and food security.
