Our cross-disciplinary seminar series continues in May with Dr Liza Griffin, UCL Development Planning Unit,  presenting 'Good Governance Scale and Power: A Case study of North Sea Fisheries'.

Summary:

In this seminar Liza will discuss her recently published book  'Good Governance Scale and Power: A Case study of North Sea Fisheries'. The book examines the discourse and practice of ‘good governance’ in the context of fisheries management. It starts by examining the ‘crisis’ of fisheries in the North Sea, caused primarily by overfishing and failure of the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy. It then goes on to analyse reforms to this policy enacted and planned between 2002 and 2013, and the proposition that collapse of fish stocks could occur as a result of deficiencies in new governing arrangements, i.e. failure to apply ‘principles of good governance’.

The talk will be followed by Q & A session and a networking reception with drinks and nibbles.
