Specialisation Marine Governance

This specialisation focuses on the sustainable governance and economics of marine and coastal systems. The goals and strategies of commercial enterprises, non-governmental and governmental organisations and international institutions are analysed, alternatives are developed and their effects are evaluated in relation to both organisations and ecosystems involved. This is summarised in the learning outcome: design goals and strategies for the governance of sustainable marine ecosystems.
