The governance of seas and oceans, defined as all of the forms of participation of society in decision-making concerning the marine environment, is mainly seen here from a legal point of view with the law of the sea as the main driver. This book presents the main aspects of maritime law and the history of its construction. The use of living resources, minerals and marine energy reserves, marine activities, disturbances of marine ecosystems by an increasing shipping traffic, are taken into account.
The legal or socio-economic issues linked to the development of renewable marine energies or to the setting up of marine protected areas are also discussed. Within the framework of globalization, the implementation of an integrated management of seas and coastal zones is analyzed by underlining the interest in the involvement of maritime communities to ensure the durability of ocean activities.
The Seas and Oceans Set proposes a cross-disciplinary approach of the ocean system which leads to the governance and management of marine spaces and resources and to the adaptation of societies.
