Regulation and Governance of Marine Resources in Latin America
Director of Oceans Program, Environmental Law Institute
This seminar examines the regulations that serve as the legal underpinning for marine resources management – from the rules and institutions, to the legal authority and mechanisms. Lectures and guest speakers will focus on providing a basic understanding of the legal framework for ocean management in the Latin American context. Case studies will include regulatory examples from small-scale fisheries (including catch-shares and self-governance), MPA zoning, and transboundary fisheries governance. Students will participate in class discussions with a selection of guest speakers and craft an individual memo and a group memo on specific regulatory topics throughout this weeklong seminar.
