About this project
The Stephenson Ocean Security (SOS) Project examines the intersection of ocean health and global security. It proposes policy solutions that support sustainable development and reduce conflict.
This project focuses on the ways ecological and socioeconomic changes interact to drive competition for marine resources and how such competition contributes to instability and geopolitical risk. Proposed policy solutions emphasize the ways effective ocean governance can moderate these risks and increase the resilience of both ecosystems and states against the destabilizing forces of change.
