The Center for Asian Studies is happy to announce the following event:

"Legal Pluralism in South Indian Fisheries: A Typology of Interplays," will take place on Friday, October 19 at 4 pm in Hale 230 on the CU-Boulder campus. A lecture by Dr. Maarten Bavinck, Director of the Center for Maritime Research, University of Amsterdam. Caste law remains particularly strong along the Coromandel Coast, also affecting the management of fisheries. However, the Blue Revolution and the rise of modern trawl fisheries has prompted the development of new international law regimes and the fragmentation of national and local legal frameworks for this region’s fishing communities. At the same time, changes in Indian constitutional law are also affecting the fishing population. This talk will investigate the interactions that take place between various legal systems in the context of fishing.

This event is free and open to the public. For a complete list of all our events, please see our Events List.
