Rethinking Maritime Spatial Planning – Marine Coastal Cultures

College of Hamburg: 11-Thirteenth September 2019

Underneath 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 thus far, nonetheless, signifies that MSP occupies a special institutional and coverage house to land-based terrestrial spatial planning. Similtaneously 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 20 years. Moreover, as insurance policies and practices of built-in coastal zone administration are displaced by a spotlight of consideration on MSP, there’s a threat of a new coastal squeeze the place the land and marine turn 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 deal with the challenges posed by the sustainable governance of the land-sea interface. Particularly, we’ll concentrate on the spatial dimensions of MSP and spatial planning on the coast. Key subjects for dialogue and reflection embrace the capability of MSP to work with relational connections throughout house and the potential to have interaction with place-based knowledges and a number of methods of figuring out the ocean.
