Dr. Nkeiru Scotcher secured an academic position in Ocean Governance and the Law of the Sea at Gothenburg University

Dr. Nkeiru Scotcher secured an academic position in Ocean Governance and the Law of the Sea at Gothenburg University (Sweden). She is researching the legitimacy of regional approaches to ocean governance and the law of the sea. Her research will focus on Africa's Maritime Strategy and the strategy goals of establishing a Combined Exclusive Economic Zone (CEMZA) alongside structures for sustainable exploitation of the region’s marine resources. In addition to reviewing existing regulatory structures taking into account institutional fragmentation and relevant lacunae along with progressive development in international ocean governance in the region, her research aims to further the knowledge base as to the case-specific nature of African resource management by highlighting regional ambiguities, relevant stakeholder impact and management principles.
