Sea and coastline : controversy about ressources, knowledge and uses

Mers et littoraux : controverses à propos des ressources, des savoirs et des usages

Construisons le futur des socio-écosystèmes marins et littoraux (OCEANEXT 2019)

Summary

The sea and coastline are areas subject to very high anthropogenic pressure. The resources they contain support a plurality of uses, relating to various challenges and management devices. This makes emergence of tensions (political, economic, social or legal) particularly opportune when it comes to targetting or prioritizing uses on these spaces. The so-called “integrated” development policy aimed at preserving, modifying, encouraging or limiting practices leads to trade-offs.

Announcement

Presentation OCEANEXT

OCEANEXT 2019 is the second edition of the international multidisciplinary conference OCEANEXT, initiated in 2016 by the COSELMAR program (2013-2017). Organized by the Sea and Coastal Institute, OCEANEXT 2019 has for general theme "Building the future of marine and coastal socio-ecosystems". The conference will gather international scientists and will emphasize the multidisciplinary nature of the issues addressed.

  • Theme 1 : Understanding the past and representations of the sea
  • Theme 2 : Global changes
  • Theme 3 : Tomorrow’s innovations
  • Theme 4 : Future challenges in methodology

OCEANEXT 2019 will be held at Nantes Exhibition Center in the core of the International Exhibition MER XXL. The exhibition will promote seas and oceans in their whole shapes, strenghs and weaknesses and their vital significance for the planet and humanity. The exhibition will start on the 29th of June and end the 10th of July

Theme 1 : Understanding the past and representations of the sea

1- Tide:a stream of imaginaries

2- Science and sea imaginaries

3- Seas and coastline ; controversies about resources, knowledges and uses

The sea and coastline are areas subject to very high anthropogenic pressure. The resources they contain support a plurality of uses, relating to various challenges and management devices. This makes emergence of tensions (political, economic, social or legal) particularly opportune when it comes to targetting or prioritizing uses on these spaces. The so-called "integrated" development policy aimed at preserving, modifying, encouraging or limiting practices leads to trade-offs.

In this context, each interest group develops its own strategies for advancing its point of view. To guide, support or even oppose a particular political decision, these collective actors mobilize, among other things, quantified arguments which compels them to produce a measure, an expert knowledge that is relevant to decision-makers. The production of this knowledge shapes alliances or counter-alliances with variable configurations but whose mission is to represent and promote the interests of their members.

This is why, putting forth objective practices or producing knowledge appears to be an essential social condition for participating in the debate on the legitimacy of the uses made of the sea and the coast.

What are the registers of the knowledge produced? By whom, what are they for? How and to whom are they addressed? Who takes it and what does it produce? These are the questions that will animate the session.

The interventions will focus on scientific and sociotechnical controversies. They will be based as much as possible on empirical materials. They may address both the knowledge produced and the subject of the controversy or question it as a collective action. The field covered will relate to the sea and the coast.
