Call for Papers - Special Issue: Why do We Need Ocean and Polar Diplomacy?


The ocean and the poles are vital for climate stability and life on Earth. In spite of that, we have failed so far to manage their ecosystems in an adequate way. Overfishing, nuclear tests, pollution, acidification and faster ice melting due to climate change brought some of the worst damages that we need to tackled. Considering that the ocean is only one, and it is totally linked to the poles, this issue aims at bringing together researchers from different areas of study to discuss “ocean and polar diplomacy” in broad terms.
