|The course is a pilot web based course about conflict resolution in Coastal Zone Management with focus on Baltic Sea Region.
The course will provide you a deeper knowledge and understanding of conflict resolution in coastal zone conflicts in Baltic Sea Region from a perspective of Sustainable Development.
In the course you will mainly study:
- Background and knowledge about environmental conflicts in general and especially according to Coastal Zone Conflicts.
- Environmental Conflict Resolution (ECR): methods and tools.
- Legislation and agreements important to the BSR and costal zone conflicts.
A virtual case of conflict will be used during the course. The case is the decision to construct and implement a new oil harbour somewhere in Baltic Sea. All participators in the course will be divided in working groups and together analyse the virtual case and choose between 3-4 different locations to place a new oil harbour. The inspiration to the case comes from the COASTMAN projects.
