Scholar/Activist, Thiyagaraja Waradas, is the Commonwealth Fellow in the Department of Social and Policy Studies at the University of Bath, UK. His lecture focuses on the fishery conflict between South Indian and Northern Sri Lankan fishermen and the chronic failure of state interventions. It charts strategies from below used by the civil society and fishermen from Northern Sri Lanka to fight illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing by Indian vessels in Sri Lankan waters, and to bring the two parties together for negotiations.
