On June 15-16, 2023, the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and the Center for Governance and Markets at the University of Pittsburgh will convene a symposium to address global overfishing.
With roughly one-third of the world’s fisheries overtaxed and the World Trade Organization building momentum for reform, now is the time to work towards sustainable solutions. The symposium will bring together a diverse array of scholars, policy experts, and practitioners from academia, NGOs, and industry to craft a new international institutional approach to overfishing.
The symposium will:
- Mobilize scholars and policy experts to craft effective and innovative solutions based on the work of scholars like Nobel laureate Elinor Ostrom.
- Produce research papers on the causes and solutions to the overfishing problem.
- Provide novel solutions to overfishing for entities like the WTO.
