Nomads of a Global Industry: Seafaeres and the Marine Environment - The Quest LAP Academic Publishing October 2, 2015 Authors: Dr. Mohab Abou-Elkawam This book offers a contribution to the field of framing environmental policies in several ways. First, it makes explicit the ways in which a nomadic professional group such as seafarers frame and interact with the growing demand to protect the environment in general and the marine environment in particular. This study argues that Cultural, professional , and economic differences not only impact on the social construction of seafarers regarding environmental protection but also affects their framing of daily compliance practices as well. This allows us to review the institutional and instrumental policies carried out by different ship owners in different parts of the world and verify how this impacts on the compliance practices of this professional group in the context of a demanding and challenging regulatory environment.
