Adrienne Mannov

Technical Officer at World Maritime University


Dr. Adrienne Mannov joined WMU from the University of Copenhagen, Department of Anthropology. She is part of the World Maritime University's global study on the impact of technology and automation on maritime and transportation sector jobs. Mannov is a social anthropologist, specializing in political and economic anthropology. Her research focuses on themes of conflict, state-building, global industry and human, civil and labor rights. Growing out of this interest, her doctoral research addressed international merchant seafarers’ perceptions of contemporary maritime piracy. She conducted 16 months of field research on board merchant cargo ships trading and transiting the High Risk Area and the Gulf Guinea, on board a NATO deployed war ship in the High Risk Area and in major maritime labor supply countries among seafarers and their families, maritime training centers, seafarers’ unions, shipping companies, crewing companies, and maritime NGOs.
