Abstract

Il est particulièrement difficile de réaliser une enquête qui voudrait combiner les méthodes ethnologique et statistique. Par définition, même si elles ne sont pas exclusives, l’une est qualitative et l’autre quantitative, l’une comme l’autre essaie de combler leur déficit scientifique et épistémologique, avec plus ou moins de succès. Nous ne prétendons pas ici avoir réussi un mariage harmonieux entre les deux méthodes, mais nous avons fait notre possible pour réaliser des projections chiffrées à partir de nos données de terrain et observations tout en les comparant avec les recherches qui ont été beaucoup plus statistiques. Cette étude veut en effet répondre à certaines questions précises : qui, combien, où et comment ? Nous avons établi des statistiques qui ne peuvent être totalement fiables, mais qui donneront une vision plus réaliste que celle existante. En ce qui concerne les études réalisées par des chercheurs, la réalité de l’immigration est certes abordée, mais non dans sa complexité, c’est-à-dire des formes sociales qui ont permis à cette immigration de devenir aussi importante, de l’incroyable complicité et solidarité des organismes officiels qui masquent les véritables chiffres et des conséquences socioculturelles ; nous sommes en présence d’une population nouvelle de plusieurs millions d’individus qui développent des stratégies d’adaptation que nous étudierons. Les chercheurs se consacrent plutôt aux aspects, non négligeables évidemment, sanitaires, éducatifs et d’identité. De manière générale, c’est la prostitution qui retient le plus souvent leur attention. Celle-ci est plus « porteuse » que l’arrivée et la « gestion » des centaines de milliers de travailleurs birmans embarqués chaque année sur des bateaux de pêche qui sont pourtant régulièrement jetés à la mer ou revendus. Toujours est-il que la capacité de résilience de cette communauté birmane est si forte qu’elle en devient presque un moteur économique de développement du sud de la Thaïlande.

Abstract

Under a Memorandum of Understanding between Indonesia and Australia, traditional Indonesian fishermen are permitted access to fish in a designated area inside the 200 nautical mile Australian Fishing Zone (AFZ). However, crew and vessels are regularly apprehended for illegal fishing activity outside the permitted areas and, after prosecution in Australian courts, their boats and equipment are destroyed and the fishermen repatriated to Indonesia. This is an ethnographic study of one group of Indonesian maritime people who operate in the AFZ. It concerns Bajo people who originate from villages in the Tukang Besi Islands, Southeast Sulawesi. It explores the social, cultural, economic and historic conditions which underpin Bajo sailing and fishing voyages in the AFZ. It also examines issues concerning Australian maritime expansion and Australian government policies, treatment and understanding of Bajo fishing. The study considers the concept of “traditional” fishing regulating access to the MOU area based on use of unchanging technology, and consequences arising from adherence to such a view of “traditional”; the effect of Australian maritime expansion on Bajo fishing activity; the effectiveness of policy in providing for fishing rights and stopping illegal activity, and why Bajo continue to fish in the AFZ despite a range of ongoing restrictions on their activity.

Abstract

"This book has been prepared with the aim to present the application of these two state-of-the art technologies in agricultural sciences and food technology, and to explain the protocols for analyses of different plant, animal, microbiological and food samples as well as for different biotechnology procedures.
Selected methods and protocols which are used in plant stress physiology, weed science, fruit breeding research, microbial ecology, plant virus and fungus diagnostics, phytobacteriology, fishery, food biochemistry, food materials and food technology are described. Special adaptation of certain protocols is required for application in each of these sciences, for every type of GMO organism, food technology raw material, and food technology product, as well as for every type of bacteria, virus, fungus or fungus-like organism, for each type of raw material in terms of plant host species, plant organs, year period and conditions in the laboratory.
Application of molecular methods, primarily qPCR, and Raman microscopy/ spectroscopy in agricultural and food sciences provides substantial opportunity for increased production efficiency, food safety, better product quality and improvement of plant and animal health.
This book is aimed for students, scientists and professionals working in the field of agriculture and food technology."

Abstract

Water, in its many guises, has always played a powerful role in shaping Southeast Asian histories, cultures, societies and economies. This volume, the rewritten results of an international workshop, with participants from eight countries, contains thirteen essays, representing a broad range of approaches to the study of Southeast Asia with water as the central theme. As it was exposed to the sea, the region was more accessible to outside political, economic and cultural influences than many landlocked areas. Easy access through sea routes also stimulated trade from an early age. However, the same easy access made Southeast Asia vulnerable to political control by strong outsiders. The sea is, moreover, a source of food, but also of many hazards. At the same time, Southeast Asian societies and cultures are confronted with and permeated by ‘water from heaven’ in the form of rain, flash floods, irrigation water, water in rivers, brooks and swaps, water-driven power plants, and pumped or piped water, in addition to water as a carrier of sewage and pollution. Finally, the volume deals with the role of water in classification systems, beliefs, myths, illness and healing.

Abstract

The practical importance of economic valuation information can hardly be overstated. Coastal and marine resource policy planning and management benefit from complete information on the impact of policy decisions.
