Human Rights, Forced Labour and Sustainability in Global Fisheries: A Potential Canadian Contribution to Enhancing Decent Work in Fishing

Faculty Associate Peter Vandergeest (Geography) co-authored a report released this summer that considers potential Canadian contributions to enhancing decent work in fishing. Commissioned by Oceana Canada, it draws from Vandergest’s SSHRC-funded research for the Work at Sea project. Co-author Melissa Marschke is also the grant’s co-investigator along with third author Trevor Swerdfager, a Practitioner-in-Residence at the University of Waterloo.
