International Maritime Policy JNB626


International Maritime Policy will bring you into contact with different issues, including legal, regulatory and policy issues, in contemporary integrated oceans management. The underlying theme is one of integrated policy, planning and management covering all uses of the sea.

The modern maritime manager should have an appreciation of the many uses (and demands) of marine areas, the potential conflicts between these uses, and the contemporary drive to manage marine areas in an integrated and holistic manner, with a focus on sustainable development.
