Course Description: This seminar discusses the need for international relations of the oceans by addressing three interconnected topics: relevancy of ocean and maritime spaces for contending issues of international politics; who controls the oceans and how (effectively) are these spaces governed; and where the gaps remain and how they can be addressed. Even though ocean and maritime spaces cover about 70 percent of the Earth's surface and are of increasing importance to international trade, security and environmental governance, much of international relations has nevertheless turned a blind eye to maritime areas and the oceans. Many international relations principles and propositions for instance with regard to statehood, sovereignty, border-making, and international cooperation in fact do not necessarily hold for offshore areas and the high seas.
