Marine Social Sciences: Working towards an interdisciplinary research agenda
Emma McKinley, Tim Acott and Marloes Kraan
Marine Social Science Network, Greenwich Maritime Centre and MARE

Increasingly, and on an international scale, we are seeing calls for greater consideration of the social and cultural aspects of managing our global marine and coastal resources. Indeed, in recent times the value of marine social science research, data, evidence and expertise has undergone something of an upward trajectory. As a community, we are seeing continual growth, supported by a range of international interdisciplinary networks.
With this growth comes the potential to develop a collaborative international research agenda, setting out global priorities to further examine the intricacies of societal relationships with our seas and coasts. A collaboration between the Marine Social Science Network, GMC and MARE; this workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from across the marine social science disciplines, representing a range of geographical regions and perspectives, and will begin to build a future vision for marine social sciences across the globe.
The workshop will address the following key topics and themes:
  1. What does the global marine social science network look like?
  2. What are the key messages from the marine social science community, and how can these be used to raise the profile and increase understanding of the value of marine social science data and information as evidence for marine and coastal decision-making and management? What are the examples of success that can be used to support this?
  3. How can marine social sciences and the associated research agenda to deliver Sustainable Development Goal 14 (and other relevant SDGs)?
  4. What are the challenges to delivering this research agenda?
