PhD position: Inclusive value chain models for area based aquaculture certification

Based at the Environmental Policy Group (ENP) at Wageningen University in the Netherlands and Prince of Songkla University in Thailand, you will conduct independent research on the potential for inclusive area-based business models for sustainable aquaculture in Thailand, Vietnam and Bangladesh. You will develop your research around questions related to how the contract conditions and value chain arrangements controlled by retailers in Europe and Southeast Asia, and regional trade policies under ASEAN, can lead to greater inclusion of vulnerable households through area-based aquaculture management and certification. Your scholarship is a ‘sandwich’ construction, meaning you will spend half your time between Wageningen University and Prince of Songkla University. More info here
