Humankind has used the oceans for many things over the millennia: for subsistence, exploration and conquest, trade and transportation, waste disposal, energy, scientific research, warfare and national defense. Technological change and economic globalization have intensified the social, cultural and economic impacts of these uses. Using a topical and policy-analytical approach, this course examines the role of governments, non-state actors, scientific communities, and global institutions in balancing human use of the oceans with preservation of marine ecosystems and the fair distribution of ocean resources.
