About this item

The marine environment does not naturally respect arbitrary international boundaries. The establishment and management of marine protected areas therefore presents major governance challenges. This book analyses a series of marine peace park and transboundary conservation initiatives embedded in varying contextual situations to examine the underlying reasons for their success or failure. 

Utilising an adapted framework investigating the ‘pathways of influence’, it provides insights into the development of marine transboundary conservation initiatives looking at the effectiveness of international rules, international norms and discourse, market forces, and direct access to policy making. Examples are included from a wide range of jurisdictions, from territorial seas, areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJs), continental shelves and exclusive economic zones (EEZs). Case studies include the Coral Triangle, South China Sea, Wadden Sea, Red Sea and Mediterranean, and protected areas in the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific oceans. 

In addition the authors assess the potential for developing wider international cooperation as a result of relationships forged though cooperation within these marine transboundary conservation initiatives.
