This unit utilises various analytical approaches concerning the development, implementation, evaluation and legitimacy of Antarctic and oceans governance at both the international and national levels.
Three broad interrelated issue areas are examined: [i] the evolution of the Antarctic Treaty System; [ii] global, regional and domestic fisheries policy management; and [iii] emerging issues and policies in oceans governance. Case material concerning controversial, contemporary issues such as Antarctic tourism, climate change in polar regions, marine environmental protection, controlling illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, whaling, and seabird conservation are also explored.
