Fellowship to examine globalisation impact on Indonesia's fishermen

May 26, 2010

Fellowship to examine globalisation impact on Indonesia's fishermenDirk Steenbergen, PhD Candidate in the Asia Research Centre, has been awarded one of two prestigious Australia Netherlands Research Collaboration Travel Fellowships.

The fellowship will pay for Mr Steenbergen to study in the Netherlands for six months as part of his PhD program.

The Australian Netherlands Research Collaboration Program was established in 2007 by the Australian and Dutch governments to facilitate research on South East Asia in areas of mutual interest.

Mr Steenbergen's project examines the effects of globalisation and climate change on the livelihoods of fishermen in Indonesia's Eastern Islands that make up part of the 'Coral Triangle' – an area within the South-East Asian seas which is renowned for its biodiversity and natural beauty.

Mr Steenbergen's fellowship in the Netherlands will allow him to work with experts in rural development sociology and in marine conservation policy at Wageningen and Leiden Universities, and will allow him to sharpen the impact of his study on Indonesian and international marine conservation policies.
