Guest Speaker: Dr. Barb Neis on Rebuilding Collapsed Fisheries and Threatened Communities: Challenges and (Missed) Opportunities

Fisheries management has been described as a ‘wicked problem’. Drawing on the research findings of researchers, graduate students, interns and community partners of a five-year program of community-engaged research,  Barbara Neis will talk about why rebuilding collapsed fisheries and threatened communities is a particularly wicked problem. She will also talk about the lessons learned from the Community-University Research for Recovery Alliance, Memorial University(CURRA) initiatives to investigate and identify or develop potential strategies and tools for addressing this problem in west coast NL fisheries and elsewhere.


Dr. Neis is with CURRA. It is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, NL Research Development Corporation and a range of other or-ganizations. www.curra.ca
