It’s Just Conservation: To What Extent Are Marine Protected Areas in the Irish Sea Equitably Governed and Managed?
In early 2020 Strangford Lough stakeholders were invited to take part in a workshop to help PhD researcher Constance Schéré in her research, ‘To what extent does governance play a role in how effectively a marine protected area in the Irish Sea reaches its biological and socioeconomic goals?

Constance's study on equity and governance in Irish Sea MPAs has been published in Frontiers in Marine Science! You can read it online here or download a free PDF copy under “Download Article” on the righthand side: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fmars.2021.668919/full
