Ocean Policy

Promoting Ocean Policy Studies

OPRI strives to establish and promote ocean policy studies, since this constitutes an area of knowledge that is vital to the cross-sectional solution of policy challenges relating to the oceans. The Institute tracks the latest developments in ocean policies in Japan and other countries, together with the latest trends in ocean policy research, and collects relevant data. In addition, the Institute also carries out corresponding awareness raising activities, in order to contribute to the development and promotion of comprehensive and interdisciplinary ocean policy studies in Japan.

As part of these efforts, the Institute co-hosts seminars relating to ocean policy with the Japan Society of Ocean Policy, and provides other kinds of support to the Society's activities.
