Call for papers – 1st RethinkBlue Conference

We are thrilled to announce the call for papers for the 1st RethinkBlue Conference, organized under the auspices of COST Action CA22122 – “Rethinking the Blue Economy: Socio-Ecological Impacts and Opportunities.”

Join us at the University of Zadar, Croatia, from April 23rd to 24th, 2024.

Deadline for abstract submission: February 29, 2024

Since its inception at the Rio+20 conference, the Blue Economy has emerged as a leading policy paradigm, encompassing all economic activities related to our oceans. Yet, its rapid adoption across various sectors has led to a proliferation of competing discourses and frameworks, necessitating a critical reevaluation of its socio-ecological impacts and opportunities.

The #RethinkBlue conference aims to serve as a dynamic forum for scholars, practitioners, and policymakers to explore and critically assess the Blue Economy from a social perspective. We encourage submissions that engage with the theme either theoretically or empirically, particularly those that:

– Examine maritime occupations

– Address food security & sustainable blue consumption

– Explore the dynamics of port cities & coastal communities

– Investigate fisheries governance & emergent activities

– Analyze the implications of climate change & natural hazards

This conference represents a unique opportunity to question the conventional understanding of the Blue Economy, highlight empirical reconfigurations in maritime sectors, and discuss potential contradictions, conflicts, and synergies.
