Maryland Sea Grant seeks to hire a Legal Fellow and a Graduate Assistant. More details.
This project undertakes an interdisciplinary comparative analysis of the formation and stability of major environmental management programs for four coastal or regional seas, including the Chesapeake Bay. The project inquires how the activities of scientific communities contribute to the success or failure of attempts at environmental governance. It will draw lessons from recent history concerning the prospects of cooperation among groups sharing a regional biological commons. The project would produce publishable papers preparatory to the planned Maryland International Conference on the Environmental Management of Coastal Seas.
