In his research, Joeri Scholtens studies a fishing community in post-war northern Sri Lanka whose access to fishing grounds has been structurally compromised. Although restrictions were lifted after the civil war (1983-2009), they were not able to regain meaningful access to their fishing grounds due to the intrusion of trawlers from the neighbouring Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Scholtens asks how this community’s marginal access is reproduced and contested and what this implies for civil society efforts to improve practices of multilevel transboundary fisheries governance.
