Description

Integrating social responsibility into global seafood production: Overfishing, human rights abuse, and the pathway to ending illegality in global fisheries Integrating social responsibility into global seafood production: Overfishing, human rights abuse, and the pathway to ending illegality in global fisheries Integrating social responsibility into global seafood production: Overfishing, human rights abuse, and the pathway to ending illegality in global fisheries There is now incontrovertible evidence documenting pervasive abuse and threats to human rights in the global seafood sector. The same factors that drive human rights abuses in the sector: rising demand, marginal profitability, opaque industry practices, and weak governance, also enable environmental sustainability problems. This initiative will produce the first-ever sector-wide estimates of the geographic, production mode, and supply chain prevalence of human rights abuse in global fisheries. Working with a range of new methods, datasets, and a diverse community of researchers, this initiative form a solutions-focused research initiative that will produce novel insights into human rights abuses at a global scale. This analysis will aim to fully articulate the drivers of human rights abuses at sea and will be developed with key practitioners that can guide the future reform through policy pathways to increase the implementation of social safeguards in the sector. The project will take a phased approach, with collectively developed research approach and analysis, followed by direct engagement with decision-makers and end-users supported by a media and communications strategy. Key outputs include high-impact peer-reviewed scientific publications, which will support international, domestic, and corporate policy solutions.
