The Sustainable Ocean Project is holding its final conference on 3-4 September 2020 in Utrecht (the Netherlands). This project has been dealing with the following overarching research question since 2015: how can the law contribute to the sustainable use of the oceans and strike a balance between competing interests at sea?
The conference will be structured around four interrelated themes:
- Due diligence as obligation and/or balancing standard;
- Balancing principles in international law interpretation;
- The role of regionalism in the accommodation of multiple interests;
- The role of state consent and the participation of other actors in international law-making and law implementation.
Abstracts are accepted until 30 March 2020. More information is available here.
