Abstract

This session looks at the conflicts in the maritime borders, specifically in the Atlantic coast of the Iberian peninsula and the Atlantic archipelagos. Ruiz Pilares analyses the conflicts between fishermen and merchant in the Lower Andalusia, who in many cases came into conflict by their different economic interests. Ríos Toledano continues in the same area, studying piracy against the Castilian ports by Genovese and Catalonian sailors. Finally, Melo da Silva explores the same topic on the Portuguese coast.
