Standard Ships of World War One: Too Little and Too Late? Seminar at the National Maritime Museum

On the 14th May, Chris Ware, of the Greenwich Maritime Museum and the University of Greenwich will be presenting his seminar:

Standard Ships of World War One: Too Little and Too Late?

After a hands-off approach to Merchant Shipping for most of the First World War, by 1917 the need for new tonnage was becoming acute. The Standard ships were seen as the answer. Based on contemporary designs, they were to fill the void left by losses to U-boats, but did enough come into service to make a difference? Or did they create a bubble in the market for ships that caused a collapse in the period of post-war austerity?

This is part of the Caird Library Research Programme 2018.

“Environmental Governance of the Oceans” by Dr Tim. A Stojanovic, University of St Andrews.

“Environmental Governance of the Oceans” by Dr Tim. A Stojanovic, University of St Andrews.

A free seminar held at the University of Greenwich.
Human activities in the oceans are expanding rapidly. There is concern that the oceans are facing environmentally degrading development pressures, as catchments did the industrial revolution. But there is also hope that new forms of activity can be developed smartly to minimise environmental impacts and benefit society. In response to these pressures, since 2005 over 60 marine plans have been developed by nations to help govern the marine environment. This paper will provide an overview of the phases and scales of marine development in the global oceans, as well as a review of the approaches to marine planning. In conclusion, the seminar will invite scholarly reflection surrounding these practicable tasks, including: What kind of institutional arrangements can draw together public, private and civil society into partnerships for the sustainability of the oceans? How should marine plans draw on the traditions of planning in the terrestrial environment? Which principles of governance will lead to more just allocation and sustainable outcomes for the world’s oceans? Such research questions build upon Greenwich Maritime Centre’s stated aims to deepen understanding of the relationships between society and the sea.

Tuesday 3rd April, 2018
