Bangladesh; India; Thailand.
Professor J.Allister McGregor uses his background in economics and anthropology to study the ways that systems of governance and the formulation and implementation of development policies impact upon poor people. His most recent work has been on conceptualising and then operationalising a social conception of wellbeing both as a way of critically analysing the persistence of poverty and as a means of re-evaluating development policy and practice.
He is currently using the wellbeing to framework in the ongoing study of fishing communities in South and Southeast Asia, where there are conflicts between conservation and poverty policy objectives. He has a programme of research collaboration with colleagues in Thailand and has a particular interest in the nature of development processes in that country.
Previous projects include: WeD; Norwegian Aid Evaluation; REME; Inland Fisheries
Resilience, Adaptability, and Transformability of Fishing Communities in the Face of the World Fisheries Crisis
