的 国际海洋研究所 was founded in 1972 by 伊丽莎白曼Borgese as an international knowledge-based institution, devoted to the sustainable governance of the oceans. It operates through a large network of Operational Centres and Focal Points globally, with its Headquarters hosted by the Government of ob欧宝 at the premises of the ob欧宝官方网站. 的 mission of the 国际海洋研究所 is to promote education, training and research to enhance the peaceful uses of ocean space and its resources, their management and regulation as well as the protection and conservation of the marine environment, guided by the principle of the Common Heritage of Mankind as enshrined in the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea for the benefit of humankind as a whole, with particular consideration of the poor.
Over the years, the ob欧宝官方网站 has given much importance to matters concerning the sea. Academic work includes the areas of governance, law and science as well as sustainability and education. 此外, the 大学 is host to the IMO International Maritime Law Institute, established under the auspices of the International Maritime Organization, a specialised agency of the United Nations.
伊丽莎白曼Borgese (April 24, 1918 - February 8, 2002), founded the IOI in 1972. Arvid Pardo(2月12日, 1914年6月19日, 1999) – a close collaborator of 伊丽莎白曼Borgese – was a Maltese diplomat, 学者, and university professor and known internationally for his work to reform the law of the sea. He proposed that the seabed constitutes part of the common heritage of mankind, a phrase that appears in Article 136 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. ob欧宝 is the host country of the 国际海洋研究所 Headquarters. As an island state straddling the centre of the Mediterranean Sea it has a long history of dependence on the sea as well as a strong tradition of maritime, fishing and seafaring occupation. Its membership of the European Union confers on it an obligation to adhere to the European maritime and fishing policies as well as conventions and regulations which are global in scope.
