Rethinking Maritime Spatial Planning – Marine Coastal Cultures

College of Hamburg: 11-Thirteenth September 2019

Beneath the EU Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) Directive, Member States are tasked with the preparation of maritime spatial plans by 2021. These plans are required to take account of land-sea interactions. Expertise up to now, nevertheless, signifies that MSP occupies a unique institutional and coverage area to land-based terrestrial spatial planning. Concurrently MSP is turning into established as a proper coverage instrument utilized in a coordinated method throughout Europe, European spatial planning has reached an deadlock, with a discernible shift away from bold spatial methods during the last twenty years. Moreover, as insurance policies and practices of built-in coastal zone administration are displaced by way of a spotlight of consideration on MSP, there’s a danger of a new coastal squeeze the place the land and marine change into institutionalised as distinct coverage areas. This interdisciplinary workshop goals to discover and critically replicate on the capability for MSP and spatial planning extra broadly to handle the challenges posed by the sustainable governance of the land-sea interface. Specifically, we are going to concentrate on the spatial dimensions of MSP and spatial planning on the coast. Key subjects for dialogue and reflection embody the capability of MSP to work with relational connections throughout area and the potential to have interaction with place-based knowledges and a number of methods of understanding the ocean.
