The programme has been designed to ensure the future sustainability of the world’s oceans in accordance with the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The power of the two institutions, both founded by the International Maritime Organization, has been joined together to provide a unique learning opportunity for maritime and marine professionals who aim to shape the future of the world’s oceans.
Graduates of the programme from World Maritime University will be expert international maritime lawyers, immersed in the UN system structure and goals, who can advocate for the policies and legislation to transform the world’s oceans and support their sustainable development. They will be fully equipped to play an important role in developing national ocean governance policies that reflect the latest international initiatives, rules and regulations.
The initiative for the MPhil International Maritime Law and Ocean Policy programme stemmed from the increasing threats to the oceans by a number of human activities and the lack of proper governance of the waters within and beyond the limits of national jurisdiction. Issues of regulation and governance as well as fragmented international regimes add another layer of complexity. Ocean governance is ever-changing and it is critical to establish safe and sustainable ocean governance for the 21st century and beyond.
