Abstract: In this thesis, I analyze the effectiveness of community-based management (CBM), as a participatory governance system, for securing the access to fishery resources and coastal land of small-scale indigenous communities, whose livelihoods have been previously threatened by market-led and government-supported dispossessions, known as ocean grabbing. From CBM experiences in Coron Island in the Philippines, Gili Indah in Indonesia and Patos Lagoon in Brazil, I found that CBM is a powerful tool to put forward legislative pressure for placing pro-community norms and institutions and, to create public awareness on environmental degradation and fishermen marginalization. However, without the support from government authorities or NGOs, the lack of education and competition for resources among fishermen prevent the creation of a comprehensive system for conflict resolution and community administration over resources.
