The International Ocean Institute’s flagship interdisciplinary training programme has been conducted at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia each summer since being initiated by Elisabeth Mann Borgese in 1981. This two-month programme on Ocean Governance: Policy, Law and Management emphasises the importance of viewing the ocean as a system with varied users and multiple, often competing and conflicting, uses. It also aims to increase awareness of the fact that ocean management requires broad interdisciplinary skills, new institutional and legal infrastructures, and new forms of intergovernmental and non-governmental organisation and cooperation at the local, national and international levels. Training consists of over 200 hours in the classroom, and includes lectures, interactive discussions, field trips, simulations and exercises, individual participant presentations, and an international round table.
Applications are invited for 2019 course scheduled for 22nd May – 19th July 2019.
Application forms can be downloaded from the training section of IOI-Canada’s website or requested from: Madeleine Coffen-Smout, Programme Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for receipt of completed applications is 5th January 2019.
