Rupture, Gendered Adaptation, and the Social Economy of Indian Ocean Fisheries
Centre for Poverty Analysis
The objective of this proposed planning project is to convene an international, interdisciplinary group of scholars who conduct research on fisheries across four Indian Ocean countries - India, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, and Tanzania. Collectively, we plan to develop a comparative project that investigates emerging economic and environmental changes in the region and how these are mediated by intersectional social relations: gender, ethnicity/race, caste, class, and place. Our overarching research question is to understand how different regional social economies of fisheries in the Indian Ocean shape possibilities for adaptation to rupture.
