Biography

Coco’s PhD research explores the nature, dynamics and complexity of transnational environmental conflict in relation to seafood, fisheries and target markets. Her study seeks to understand how environmental conflict is produced, communicated, responded to and resolved between pressure groups, governments and industry in the context of regional politics, trade, consumption, sustainability and media technologies. This is achieved by following issues and campaigns that seek to influence political, corporate and consumer behaviour. Her research will provide insight into the capacity for environmental campaigning and mediated public debate to influence environmental and market related decision-making in an increasingly transnational world. Her project is connected to the ARC project DP150103454 Transnational Environmental Campaigns in the Australia-Asia Region.
