Ocean Frontiers Working Group

Ocean Frontier issues are transnational and global in scope, and are part of international security and peace studies. The territorial frontier issues in the global ocean commons include scientific and technological issues of seabed energy exploration, violence and pacification at disputed boundaries at sea, human and weapons trafficking, the threat of terrorism at sea, and militarization of strategic maritime regions of our world that affect human security and peace.
