The project addresses the European Union's role as a key player in policy-making to counter the global challenge of fish-stock extinction. On a global scale the EU's fisheries policy scores more as a laggard than a leader, and knowledge transfer between scientific assessments and policy implementation remains a subject of concern. Both observations suggest that communication gaps play a central role for the development of sustainable fisheries policy. The project argues that, beyond compliance with quotas, sustainable fisheries policy would benefit from addressing socio-cultural survival. Given the interdisciplinary research design, preliminary studies are essential to refine case studies and research details, e.g., allowing for conceptual discussion about the shared research design, and specifying targeted research outcomes. The planning activities focus on a workshop in Hamburg and include bilateral meetings among researchers of the project teams.
