Abstract or Summary
  • Coastal areas in Southeast Asia have historically been globalised spaces, with land and resources such as fisheries influenced by trade since pre-colonial times. As the intensity of resource use has expanded the resilience of the coastal environment and effectiveness of management practices have come into question. Commodity chains that once involved a stepwise progression through multiple global, national, local scales are now controlled through new ‘spaces’ of information and access, beyond the reach of scale dependent governance regimes such as the state. As a result the interaction of actors in commodity chains needs to be reframed within the lens of globalization while reiterating the practice and function of local actors. The spatial complexity of trade networks is as much a function of social cohesion as it is a function of the location of market infrastructure and sites of production. It is therefore important to understand the spatiality of the system in order to determine the geography of the trade, the source and influence of information, and the relevance of governance systems which mediate access and control over coastal resources. This paper examines the linkages between material transfers of commodities through the space of place and the movement of informational through what is increasingly referred to as the ‘space of flows’. Using examples from Southeast Asia attention is given to the global dynamics over the coastal environment, including the process of resource extraction through artisanal and global commodity chains, and the flows of information, technology and consumer perceptions back to these areas. The paper then discusses the role of contemporary governance systems over resource use by focusing on how state and non state actors continually manipulate both formal and informal regulations over both flows of commodities and information, creating a complex web of socio-spatial interaction from local to global scales.
