This chapter shifts the scale of analysis to the European Union's (EU) governance of global resources. It traces contestations over definitions of ‘the public interest’ in fisheries management, showing how publics as subjects and objects are summoned, convened, and mediated. The chapter draws attention to the sustainability of part of the ‘global commons’ of natural resources, especially in the face of perceived crises. It shows how different stakeholders mobilized different claims to represent the public interest and how controversies over such claims tested the limits of the governance institutions of the EU.

Keywords:   EU governance, global resources, natural resources, public interest, fisheries management
