Research questions

  • Ocean Governance Architecture
  • Deep sea mining
  • Conflicts over maritime areas

I study how the oceans are governed. Oceans are increasingly divided up in zones, to which different rules apply set by various authorities. At the same time, there are overlapping regulations and gaps in regulation. Many claims to utilizing ocean space are in conflict with each other and competing with sustainable protection of the oceans. These diverging interests are evident in the case of deep sea mining. With my background as an international relations scholar I pay particular attention to the political struggle for setting standards and the interplay between international and national institutions.
