Research Overview


  • Hampus' research portfolio focuses on coastal livelihood support initiatives paired with applied research on developing community economies with innovation in aquatic food systems. He has a strong background researching the interplay of international, national, and local management institutions, and how these influence conduct and sustainability in marine resource use and trade systems. His local-to-global research portfolio has also included analyses of institutions that govern seafood markets in Asia, and ultimately how this influences aquatic food system actors at the distal end of these global supply chains. These are seen as “external forces” acting upon rural fish-based livelihoods. Enhancing such livelihoods, or supplementing them, is a current focal area of research and program implementation.
