This book explores how the state can foster collective action by
fisher's communities in fisheries management. It presents a
different perspective from Elinor Ostrom's classic work on the
eight institutional conditions that foster collective action in
natural resource management and instead emphasizes the role of the
state in fisheries co-management, engaging a state-centric notion
of `meta-governance'. It argues that first, the state is required
to foster collective action by fishers; and secondly, that the
current fisheries co-management arrangements are state-centric. The
study develops these arguments through the analysis of three case
studies in Japan, Vietnam and Norway. The author also makes a
theoretical contribution to governance literature by developing
Ostrom's `society-centric' framework in a way which makes it more
