The Ocean Frontier Institute's seminar explores how human rights and the arts support inclusive ocean research, integrating diverse knowledge systems for innovative approaches to conservation.


In this Social Science and Humanities Seminar Series by the Ocean Frontier Institute, the presenters explore how human rights and the arts can support inter- and transdisciplinary ocean research that responds to the needs, and integrates the knowledge systems, of different groups, including Indigenous peoples, small-scale fishers, women and children, with a view to co-producing integrated knowledge that takes into account the ocean-climate nexus, biodiversity and cultural heritage. It also illustrates how piloting arts- and human rights-based approaches to ocean research can help co-develop innovative processes for more inclusive and integrated decision-making on ocean conservation and sustainable use.
