Study on the propagation of sustainable development concept among Gulf ports based on complex network
The development of the Gulf ports group has brought challenges to the marine environment and global climate change. Deconstructing the propagation mechanism of the sustainable development concept among the Gulf ports group will help to provide a new perspective for the ports governance in the Gulf region. This paper constructed the ports relationship network of Gulf region with the method of complex network, established the propagation model of sustainable ports concept, and simulated the model. The results suggest that: the relationship structure of Gulf ports group affects the spread of sustainable development concept, and the political conflicts, complex interest structure and randomization of ports network in the Gulf region will hinder the spread of sustainable development concept to some extent; the enhancement of ports’ sustainable development competitiveness in Gulf region can effectively promote the spread of sustainable development concept, and the increasing pressure of international regulations on sustainable development and regional consensus will make ports more receptive to the concept of sustainable development.

Abstract

The development of the Gulf ports group has brought challenges to the marine environment and global climate change. Deconstructing the propagation mechanism of the sustainable development concept among the Gulf ports group will help to provide a new perspective for the ports governance in the Gulf region. This paper constructed the ports relationship network of Gulf region with the method of complex network, established the propagation model of sustainable ports concept, and simulated the model. The results suggest that: the relationship structure of Gulf ports group affects the spread of sustainable development concept, and the political conflicts, complex interest structure and randomization of ports network in the Gulf region will hinder the spread of sustainable development concept to some extent; the enhancement of ports’ sustainable development competitiveness in Gulf region can effectively promote the spread of sustainable development concept, and the increasing pressure of international regulations on sustainable development and regional consensus will make ports more receptive to the concept of sustainable development.
