International Agreements in the Fisheries Sector
(economics and trade considerations)
15 - 16 May 2018 Place: Torshavn, Faroe Islands
The focus of the workshop is to explore strategic interactions among agents in fisheries. Special features of such interactions that are of particular interest are agreements for the joint management of fishing resources, agreements for access to living marine resources, the role of RFMO's in facilitating intergovernmental cooperation, trade agreements in the seafood sector, as well as laborers conditions under international fishing agreements. We welcome both theoretical and empirical papers that integrate state-of-the art game-theoretic but also broader resource-economic models within fisheries. We further solicit contributions on new developments, trends and updates in the fisheries sector, cross-national fisheries management structures, national fisheries reforms, past and ongoing challenges in fisheries agreements, decision-making and policy planning.
