DiMento & Hickman: Environmental Governance of the Great Seas: Law and Effect

Posted on Actualizado enn

Joseph F.C. DiMento (Univ. of California, Irvine) & Alexis J. Hickman (Univ. of California, Irvine) have published Environmental Governance of the Great Seas: Law and Effect (Edward Elgar Publishing 2012).

Here’s the abstract:
The great seas contain immense resources and provide invaluable services to humankind, yet their environmental conditions are threatened worldwide. The authors of this comprehensive study provide a rich assessment of the seas and the efficacy of the initiatives governing them, as well as suggestions for improving governance and protection. Case studies of the Baltic, Mediterranean, Black, Caribbean and East Asian seas illustrate the varying degrees of policy success, failure and promise.

The authors address the specific roles of the Law of the Sea and the United Nations Regional Seas Programme and discuss the importance of better information exchange between scientists and policymakers, increased funding, greater participation, and new and more effective laws. National, regional and international initiatives are conceptualized as clusters, and their success evaluated using data on the physical conditions of the seas, the law and policy adopted, and international cooperation.
