2017 Exeter Gulf Conference - "Hegemonic Boundaries and Asymmetric Power in the Gulf"

In recent decades, scholarship on the Middle East has benefited from a dynamic approach to the relationship between identities and boundaries. The post-structural turn encouraged us to think beyond bounded communities to reveal the interconnections, exchanges and forms of relationality that cross and contest perceived cultural and national boundaries. More recently, the Arab revolutions brought our attention to discourses of liberation throughout the region along with collective challenges to hegemonic power and hopes for new moral communities.

LEEP Seminar: Eliciting values for complex goods: community preferences for the marine environment

Managers and the general public may have different preferences for marine management. This implies that expert-driven planning approaches may not attract the necessary public support to achieve biodiversity objectives. To understand public preferences for management, we elicited spatially explicit non-market values for marine ecological features in South-East Queensland in Australia. Our survey revealed that the Queensland population has higher existence values for different habitat types; for example, sea grass areas were valued twice as much as inshore reef areas. Full details
