Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Most of the literature on global governance emphasises the roles of Western nations, transnational corporations that originate in the West, and international organisations like the WTO and OECD which also exhibit a Western neoliberal bias and domination over other parts of the world (Michie, 2011). Even though other regions are receiving recent attention and have formed transnational organisations that represent their interests and provide some opportunities for participation in global governance, the perspectives of non-Western countries in interpreting global governance does not leave room for conceptions arising from other cultures. One of these regions is the Muslim world, which ironically was one of the main foundational sources for modern disciplines in the West during the Renaissance and which continued to shape ideas during the Enlightenment (Akasoy & Giglioni, 2013). It is from this intellectual heritage that concepts of global governance were forming in modern history, for example, through influence on Kant’s (1795/2006) essay “Toward Perpetual Peace.”
