Work Programme 1

Legal aspects of the OAF, philosophical aspects of its terminology and the linkages between the governance accounts and the risk accounts

 

Overview

WP1 focuses on the international-law and domestic-law environments within which the OAF is to be used, the accounting of current governance and regulatory instruments in the OAF as well as the philosophical aspects of the OAF terminology and the linkages between the novel governance accounts and the novel risk accounts.

WORK PROGRAMME 1 - PROJECTS

Output Lead: Professor Patrick Vrancken

Project 1.1 interrogates the relationship between international law and the OAF as a whole, as well as the governance accounts in particular, with an emphasis on the environmental and maritime-security aspects of ocean governance.

Project 1.2 interrogates the relationship between, on the one hand, the South African legislative and policy instruments governing marine spatial planning (MSP) and, on the other hand, the OAF as a whole and the governance accounts in particular.

Output Lead: Professor Hennie van As

Project 1.3 interrogates the relationship between, on the one hand, the South African legislative and policy instruments governing coastal and ocean governance in the local sphere of government and, on the other hand, the OAF as a whole and the governance accounts in particular. 

Project 1.4 interrogates the relationship between, on the one hand, the South African legislative and policy instruments governing coastal and ocean governance in the provincial sphere of government and, on the other hand, the OAF as a whole and the governance accounts in particular.

Output Lead: Professor Joanna Botha

Project 1.5 interrogates the extent to which the OAF as a whole and the governance accounts in particular can contribute to the State respecting, protecting, promoting and fulfilling the right to equality as well as selected socio-economic rights.

Project 1.6 interrogates the extent to which the OAF as a whole and the governance accounts in particular can contribute to the fulfilment of the right to development.

Output Lead: Dr Bernadette Snow

Project 1.7 explores the naming paradoxes flowing from the fact that the very descriptions within the OAF and blue economy can be interpreted in different ways by different disciplines or stakeholders within the OAF.

Project 1.8 investigates the novel governance accounts within the OAF and the possible intended or unintended consequences that should be measured/tracked within the novel risk accounts.
