Michael Fabinyi’s research on fishing livelihoods available in a book
“Asia-Pacific Fishing Livelihoods” is the title of a book published recently by Branco Weiss Alumnus Michael Fabinyi together with co-author Kate Barclay. The book examines where fishing livelihoods in the Asia-Pacific region have come from, and where they are going. It centers on an understanding of fishing livelihoods within processes of historical change, and the social and political relationships within which they are embedded. Based on detailed empirical research, the authors develop the idea of a relational approach to fishing livelihoods, describing how they are shaped by wider political and economic trajectories, by local social relationships and by institutional structures.
The book was published under Open Access by Palgrave MacMillan and can be downloaded here.
