MARIPOLDATAbase (SUF edition)


Full edition for scientific use. Starting in 2018, the MARIPOLDATAbase has systematically catalogued Collaborative Event Ethnography (CEE) observations covering the entire BBNJ (Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction) negotiations until June 2023. By providing primary data on the whole negotiation process, the MARIPOLDATAbase supports empirical scholarly work on diverse aspects of international marine biodiversity politics.The database can be used to trace and map the BBNJ process. It contains data on actors and alliances, staments, statements' length, treaty text, positions, networks, statements, concepts, and meeting formats which facilitate the analysis of various aspects of agreement-making. The database has specific value for researchers who, in the past, struggled to access the BBNJ negotiations as well as for scholars who wish to follow marine biodiversity negotiations in the future. By facilitating the use of primary negotiation data, the MARIPOLDATAbase structure and content support both broad research areas and specific research questions.
