This collaborative research project with the Scottish government will explore the meaning, justification and implementation of social objectives within fisheries policy. The research will draw on theories of territorial rural development and multi-level governance and notions of ‘resilience’ and ‘adaptive capacity’. It will consider such questions as: What has been the broad socio-economic impact of recent fisheries policies on Scotland’s fishing communities? How are fisheries and development agencies encouraging resilience and adaptation of fishing communities?

Candidates who meet the ESRC’s eligibility criteria are entitled to either a full award (covers fees, an annual stipend of £15,290 and a research training support grant) or a fees only award.
