Speaker information

Dr Liza Griffin, UCL Bartlett Development Planning Unit

Dr Liza Griffin has written widely on environmental politics and is particularly interested in debates about power and space in relation to governance and sustainability. This book examines the discourse and practice of good governance in the context of fisheries management. It looks at the crisis of fisheries in the North Sea, caused primarily by overfishing and failure of the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy, and analyses reforms to this policy. Governance theory addresses issues of power, but does not recognise the spatially contingent and relational forms of power that are exercised in actual governing practice, and this book exposes some of these spatial power relationships, showing that the presence of such relationships has implications for accountability and effective policymaking. Join us for this book launch event.
