CRC Chairs

Canada Research Chair in Ocean Law and Governance

Professor David VanderZwaag uses this Chair to evaluate global ocean governance. Specifically, Professor VanderZwaag's work includes examining the effectiveness of regional agreements for managing fisheries and protecting the arctic marine environment and also studying issues raised by sustainable development, community-based management, indigenous rights and ecosystem-based management. His research aims to develop legislative and regulatory reforms for supporting more principled decision making in ocean governance.
