The Ocean Policy Working Group is an interdisciplinary graduate and professional student working group at Duke University.

The OPWG aims to facilitate cross-disciplinary discussions and collaborations that explore the political, economic, scientific and cultural dimensions of human interactions with the ocean. Our activities examine current issues involving the global oceans and the impact of these issues on marine policy and ocean governance. We strive to relate to an audience beyond those that directly study the coast.

The OPWG is co-sponsored by the Center for International Studies and the Nicholas School of the Environment.
