Andrew Song was a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Sustainable Futures Research Laboratory in the Department of Natural Resource Sciences at McGill University in 2015. His research focused on the extent and role of social capital in enhancing the trans-boundary governance of the Great Lakes fisheries. This work is part of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)-funded project entitled “Innovation, science, and trans-boundary environmental governance: Using social capital to enhance collaboration and co-learning in the management of the Great Lakes fisheries”. His research sought to describe the degree of collaboration in the Great Lakes knowledge production system, formalize a psychometric scale for measuring trust and informal communication among various stakeholders, and to determine the effects of several measures of social capital on policy-oriented learning and knowledge sharing within the Great Lakes policy network.
