Chapter Summary

This chapter traces the background to the developments of oceans and seas and assesses whether any lessons may be derived from the European experience that may benefit countries in other ocean regions, such as the China Seas region. It describes briefly the European Union, the legal order underpinning European integration, and the recent progress in adopting an integrated approach to the management of the coastal zone and ocean areas contiguous to the European landmass. The chapter looks at the move toward the adoption of an integrated ocean governance model in a number of countries outside of the European Union. It identifies a number of obstacles that need to be overcome if the European Union is successfully implementing integrated coastal zone management (ICZM) and human interactions with ocean (IOM). It also identifies a number of issues that may be relevant to other regional areas outside of the European Union.

Keywords: China seas region; coastal governance; European approach; European Union; human interactions with ocean (IOM); integrated coastal zone management (ICZM); lessons
