Marine Policy : An Introduction to Governance and International Law of the Oceans Paperback
Part of the Earthscan Oceans series
This textbook provides the reader with a foundation in policy development and analysis and describes how policy, including legal mechanisms, is applied to marine environments around the world.
It offers a systematic treatment of all aspects of marine policy, including environmental protection, fisheries, transportation, energy, mining and climate change.
It starts with a biophysical overview of the structure and function of the marine environment with a particular emphasis on the challenges and opportunities of managing the marine environment.
An overview of the creation and function of international law is then provided with a focus on international marine law.
It explores the geographic and jurisdictional dimensions of marine policy, as well the current and anticipated challenges facing marine systems, including climate change-related impacts and resource over-exploitation.
The book should appeal to senior undergraduate and graduate students and form a core part of the curriculum for marine affairs, science and policy courses.
It will also provide supplementary reading for students taking a course in the law of the oceans, but is not aimed at legal specialists.
