As part of the activities of the COST Action Ocean Governance for Sustainability (CA 15217) a Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) Training School will be held at Queen’s University Belfast in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The workshop is aimed at PhD students. The training school will focus on examining the emergence of MSP as a new governance paradigm and critically engaging with questions related to stakeholder participation and power. The workshop will also explore how we might move MSP towards more transformative and socially just practices and examine how MSP might be linked to SDGs.
