Utrecht University will host a summer school, entitled, Introduction to the International Law of the Sea. The course will look at the maritime zones, their extent, substantive regime (including the rights of third States), and maritime boundary delimitation in case of overlapping claims. Students will see whether law is an effective tool for marine environmental protection. Students will also look in particular at international fisheries law, and offshore energy production. Another session will be devoted to dispute settlement in the law of the sea. In looking at recent development the course will have a session on future developments of the law of the sea, including the feasibility of the development of an instrument for the governance of areas beyond national jurisdiction.
The course shall take place online, on 12 July 2021 – 16 July 2021. Applications are open until 2 July 2021. More information is available here.
