Head of IMO Office for London Convention/Protocol & Ocean Affairs Lectures at WMU

On 20 May, students in the Maritime Safety and Environmental Administration specialization had the opportunity to learn from Visiting Lecturer, Mr Fredrik Haag, Head of the Office for the London Convention/Protocol and Ocean Affairs at the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Mr Haag is a 2006 graduate of the World Maritime University (WMU). 

Complementing the core instruction by resident faculty for the International Reaction to Environmental Externalities course that introduces key notions in marine environment protection such as externality, governance and social perception, Mr Haag provided an in-depth introduction and global perspective on the London Protocol and London Convention with a focus on the issues, regulatory response, relation to other regulatory frameworks, how it works at the national level, and governance structure. 

As Head of IMO’s Office for the London Convention/Protocol and Ocean Affairs, Mr Haag’s primary task is to support the implementation of the London Convention and Protocol on intentional dumping of wastes and other substances at sea. He is also involved in IMO’s work on PSSAs, marine litter, and noise and ship-strikes. He has also contributed to work on GHG emissions from ships and Ballast Water Management.

The Malmö MSc in Maritime Affairs is a 14-month programme with seven specializations: Maritime Education & Training; Maritime Energy Management; Maritime Law & Policy; Maritime Safety & Environmental Administration; Ocean Sustainability, Governance and Management; Port Management, and Shipping Management & Logistics. Foundation studies are taught in the first term and cover the introductory knowledge that is fundamental to all activities in the maritime field. Three successive terms focus on specialization studies and a dissertation.
