Résumé
«I did my doctoral research in the northern highlands of the Philippine island of Luzon, on issues of land and water rights in a wet-rice irrigation tribal area, resource allocation, control. Since then I have done research on "new forms of property" - specifically "quota systems" in the agricultural sector - concentrating on Canada but with some comparison with the Netherlands. Most recently I have taken this interest into the realm of marine fishing property systems and the recent move globally to privatize fishing rights using quota systems.»
