Branco Weiss Fellow Michael Fabinyi has successfully led a grant proposal to the Australian Research Council (ARC). The project that won a sum of 200’000 Australian Dollars is called “Governing the Blue Economy in Maritime Asia-Pacific”.

This project aims to examine the drivers, character and effects of Blue Economy governance, a highly influential agenda intended to reconcile economic growth with ocean conservation. Analysis of Blue Economy governance in China and the Philippines seeks to reveal how this agenda is represented, contested and implemented at regional, national and local scales. Expected outcomes include new knowledge concerning the influence and impacts of maritime governance in the region. This project has the potential to inform more socially equitable and environmentally sustainable governance outcomes.
