Who we are

MARE was established in 2000 by the University of Amsterdam and SISWO (Netherland’s Institute for Social Science Research). MARE now has six institutional partners, located in five countries of Europe:

The MARE staff consists of social scientists involved with topics of coast and sea, who contribute to one or more of MARE’s products (Conference, Journal MAST, Publication series). Most of them are linked to the MARE’s institutional partners, but people from other organisations and from other countries are active in MARE as well.
