Devoted to assessing the state of ocean and coastal governance, knowledge, and management, the Ocean Yearbook provides information in one convenient resource. As in previous editions, articles provide multidisciplinary expert perspectives on contemporary issues. Each new volume draws on policy studies, international relations, international and comparative law, management, marine sciences, economics, and social sciences. Each volume contains key legal and policy instruments and an annually updated global directory of ocean-related organizations.
The Yearbook is a collaborative initiative of the International Ocean Institute
(www.ioinst.org) in Malta and the Marine & Environmental Law Institute
(www.dal.ca/law/MELAW) at Dalhousie Law School.
