Direct Action At Sea: The Use of Direct Action for Marine Conservation

Sunday, June 18th at 7pm


Non-governmental organizations, community organizations, and other civil society non-state actors have traditionally been seen as relying on lobbying, advocating or protesting to further marine conservation aims. However an increasing number of actors have begun to diversify their strategies – employing direct action on the high seas. Using this confrontational strategy, activists have blockaded illegal whaling ships, interfered with poaching operations, as well as engaged in monitoring, surveillance, and ecosystem restoration. Activists have even adopted the role of law enforcement, engaging in the direct enforcement of conservation laws, in the face of state inaction or inability to act.


The talk includes a general introduction to the concept of direct action, as well as a deeper exploration of the application of this sometimes confrontational strategy at sea. The presentation presents a typology (classification) of all the various forms of direct action at sea while surveying all of the significant marine conservation groups which engage in direct action, and provides examples from the application of direct action in the field.
