The Shifting Context of Sustainability: Growth and the World Ocean Regime
March 12, 2020
The World Ocean Regime is not an official treaty agreed to by states in some formal process, but it probably governs the marine world. This talk will discuss how this regime was discovered and the nature of the economistic values and norms that are the main feature. This includes how the idea of sustainability has changed over time in discourses about the ocean to become more growth-oriented in a way that is not actually sustainable.

As part of the Master’s degree in Political Science of the University of Vienna, Dr. Alice Vadrot will be giving a course about ocean politics. Starting from the premise that the ocean space is governed by competing interests (territorial, economic, political, military, and scientific) and perspectives (the ocean as a habitat, a resource provider, a transport surface, a battleground, an object of scientific inquiry), the seminar addresses key challenges for ocean protection in the 21st century.
Renowned scientists from various universities and experts from the fields of nature conservation, museums and landscape planning have joined together to form a Biodiversity Council in view of the extinction of species. ..
