This article provides an overview of how MSP is being developed in a number of geographical and institutional contexts. This is not intended to be a thorough empirical analysis of the progress of MSP. Rather, the article aims to provide an indication of how MSP is developing in a number of leading maritime nations, the legislative and institutional arrangements these nations are adopting, the provisional outcomes of these processes and likely future challenges. The article begins by reviewing the origins of MSP and how it relates to other marine management processes. This is followed by a review of 13 national MSP initiatives, leading to conclu- sions about some of the factors currently at work in the uptake of MSP.
