Integrated Maritime Compliance and Enforcement (2nd - 3rd July)




The purpose of the two day Integrated Maritime Compliance and Enforcement (IMCE) session
is to familiarize participants with the concept of IMCE and its use to address maritime security
interests and counter maritime threats facing coastal and island states.
The session will also assist participants prepare their ocean and coastal policy document which
is to be presented to the International Round Table Panel at the end of the course.
Participants will use the IMCE methodology to develop an Integrated Maritime Security Policy
using the new 2015 Antillia scenario.
o First, they will identify Antillia’s maritime interests and threats across the spectrum of
marine activities: the management of marine resources, the protection and preservation
of the marine environment, the maintenance of maritime sovereignty, the prevention of
illegal activity, and marine safety.
o Next, they will identify capabilities to address these maritime interests and threats in
four categories: political, legal, operational/bureaucratic, and non-state/user.
o The final task is to develop policy objectives and implementation recommendations. A
quantitative analysis (using matrices) is included in the methodology to assist in
developing well reasoned policies.
Schedule.
o Thursday 2 July –
 0900–1200: Presentations – An introduction to Integrated Maritime Compliance
and Enforcement (IMCE) and the use of navies and coast guards within an
IMCE regime.
 1330-1600: Start of IMCE exercise. Three groups will work independently in
separate break-out rooms.
o Friday 3 July –
 All day 0900-1600: IMCE Exercise. Exercise continues, with lunch break. The
groups will meet together in plenary session at about 1430 to present their
Integrated Maritime Security Policy for Antillia.

Ecological Economics (3rd June)
I’ve decided to focus the majority and potentially all of time with the class on economic instruments
that can be used to improve governance. I’ll provide a high level overview of what these things are,
and why, in theory, they are useful. I’ll then provide more detail and examples of how taxes and
subsidies impact the world negatively and positively. Examples used will include the energy sector,
agriculture (with a specific example of how ag subsidies have impacted marine activities), and
fisheries. I’ll also use examples of where user fees have been effective in curbing unwanted behaviours
before turning more briefly to the use of quotas and markets.
I then want to explicitly use time for discussion and Q & A from the class re econ tools, their own
experiences and their Antillia project.
If time permits, I would then shift to the use of biophysical accounting tools (specifically LCA) and
use examples from my own research to illustrate how they can be used to tell us about the impact of
seafood production systems.
