Editor, Journal of Legal Pluralism

Dr. Melanie G. Wiber is an economic and legal anthropologist. She joined the University of New Brunswick in 1987 and has been Full Professor of Anthropology since 1995.

She conducted her doctoral research on water, land and gold mining property rights among an upland minority group in the Philippines (see Politics, Property and Law in the Philippine Uplands, WLU Press, 1994).

After joining UNB, Dr. Wiber completed a study of gender in human evolution imagery (see Erect Men/Undulating Women: The Visual Imagery of Gender, Race and Progress in Reconstructive Illustrations of Human Evolution, WLU Press, 1997). She then did research in the dairy industry, examining the impact of supply management and dairy quota. This led to an interest in the property aspects of fisheries quota, and for the past fifteen years, Dr. Wiber has conducted participatory, community-based, fisheries research in the Maritime Provinces. This research has focused on natural resource management, community-based management, local ecological knowledge and property rights.

From 2006-2012, Dr. Wiber was co-applicant on the Coastal CURA (Community and University Research Alliance), funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), where she collaborated with Dr. Tony Charles (SMU) and other team members, on integrated coastal management. Among other responsibilities on this project, Dr. Wiber supervised both MA and PhD students funded by the CURA. She also led a Working Group on the Socio-Economics of Integrated Management for the Oceans Management Research Network (OMRN) that was collaboratively funded by SSHRC and Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). Her current research is conducted under Project 1.1 of the Canadian Fisheries Research Network, funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

Her many publications have focused on property theory, including new forms of property rights in dairy and fishing quota, in genetics, and in cultural property, as well as community-based management and local ecological knowledge in the fisheries, and gender issues in human evolution imagery (see publications below).

UNB has granted her two Merit Awards (1998, 2006) and a Research Professorship (2003). Since 1999, she has served as an executive member for the International Commission on Legal Pluralism, and has served as Commission Secretariat (2001-2006). She currently serves as Editor for the Journal of Legal Pluralism.

For the past ten years she has been a regular visiting scholar at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle, Germany. She has received numerous national and international research grants, including SSHRC standard research, conference and workshop grants, Max Planck funding, and visiting scholar grants from Wageningen University in the Netherlands.

Research

Ethnographic Study of Risk Assessment in Coastal Management

Beginning in May 2014, Dr. Wiber began research on risk in the marine environment, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada Insight program.

Atlantic Canadian coastal communities have experienced rapid change in environment (groundfish collapse), economy (market declines), society (loss of infrastructure) and culture (erosion of community cohesion). This project examines the role of local ecological knowledge in developing a proactive approach to risk assessment and to risk mitigation for sustainability and resilience of our coastal communities.

How do we evaluate the risks inherent in new and continued human uses of our oceans? Two types of risk have been distinguished: objective (reflecting scientific values and concerns) and subjective (reflecting local values and concerns). These often differ, which creates conflict. This project builds on previous research into such conflicts and will utilize ethnographic methods to examine the interactions between new (tidal power) and continuing (aquaculture; inshore fisheries) uses of marine space. It adds value to the CFRN project by studying how scientific risk assessment is undertaken, and whether incorporation of local knowledge changes science practice. It examines the co-learning undertaken by resource users and scientists, and evaluates the potential of such co-learning to mitigate environmental risks. Further, it explores the science-to-policy nexus by investigating how risk assessment produced under conditions of shared learning does or does not contribute to local management planning.

Fundy North's Fishermen's Association (FNFA) has been involved in social research through the Coastal CURA and in science collaboration through the Canadian Fisheries Research Network (see www.cfrn-rcrp.ca). This SSHRC Insight project utilizes this collaboration to investigate current and developing risk assessment and mitigation methods. Four interrelated projects investigate both marine science and local fishermen assessment of risk, and promotes conditions for and investigation of the outcomes of sharing these assessments. One project utilizes proposals for tidal power installations to compare existing environmental impact assessments with fishermen's concerns, and to study how collaboration between tidal power proponents and fishermen may or may not better address associated risks. A second study builds on a current natural science project to examine the interaction between fishermen and scientists as they assess the potential impact of finfish aquaculture on the health of lobster stocks.

A third project utilizes participatory GIS to map fishermen's knowledge about environmental risks, especially marine debris in the Bay of Fundy. A fourth project interviewed retired and active marine scientists to investigate how scientific risk has been identified and researched and how local knowledge may be changing that. All four projects provide information on when and how risk is identified and how potential impacts are evaluated and utilized in resource planning.

The results of this project will further expand on the information available to local planning organizations and to government managers, and will contribute to scholarship on resource management and on risk assessment at both the national and the international level, through our collaboration with the Canadian Fisheries Research Network and with international networks of academics.
