Abstract:
The Maritime Institute of Ghent University was founded in 1986 under the name ‘Study and Documentation Centre for Port and Maritime Sciences’. The roots of the institute lie within the Faculty of Law. Its main research topics are: international law of the sea, international and European environmental law and biodiversity law, sustainable management of the North Sea, marine protected areas, marine spatial planning and integrated coastal zone management. Within the scope of environmental law, particular attention is paid to: the pollution from ships, marine nature protection, the law with regard to fresh-water bodies as well as climate change. The conducted research often has a multidisciplinary nature due to the collaboration with other research groups of Ghent University (marine biologists, bio-engineers, marine geographers, environmental economists) or other European research groups. The Maritime Institute is also a partner in the Centre for Environmental and Energy Law of Ghent University.

The members of the Maritime Institute have, within their field of expertise, extensive lecturing experience on a Master and Master after Master level in various faculties of Ghent University (law, political sciences, sciences, bioscience engineering) as well as in other Belgian universities (Vrije Universiteit Brussel and University of Antwerp). The Maritime Institute coordinates the Master in Maritime Sciences since 1986 and the Permanent Training in Port Management since 2001. In addition, the institute organises an annual thematic Maritime Symposium since 1996.

A key moment for the institute was winning the Award ‘Rudi Verheyen’ in 2004. The research team, led by Prof. Maes and Prof. Lavrysen, won the price thanks to their preliminary research that led to the drafting of the decree on integrated water policy and the accompanying Explanatory Memorandum.

In the future, the Maritime Institute will further focus on topics such as marine biodiversity, marine spatial planning, climate change law and its effects on the sea, offshore renewable energy, international law of the sea, marine protected areas and protection of underwater culture heritage. The institute is internationally renowned for its participation in European and national projects, as well as for their cooperation with many European research institutes.
