Law Beyond Boundaries: innovative mechanisms for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction
Friday 24 February 2017, Wollongong
Hosted by the Australian and New Zealand Society of International Law (ANZSIL) Oceans and International Environmental Law Interest Group in association with the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security at the University of Wollongong.
This workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss a broad range of legal issues associated with biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction and ongoing discussions at the United Nations General Assembly on the potential development of a third Implementing Agreement on this topic under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. The workshop aims to address the following question: How can international law be used in innovative ways to effectively conserve and sustainably manage marine biological diversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction?
The program features a wide range of interesting and topical papers that address relevant law and policy issues from local, regional and global perspectives and will provide an excellent basis for discussion.
There is no charge to attend the workshop. ANZSIL members and all those with an interest in the ongoing negotiations on biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction are encouraged to attend. However, due to the size of the venue, places will be limited and registration is essential. Registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
The workshop will be followed by a networking event sponsored by the University of Wollongong's Global Challenges Program.
Any enquiries should be directed to the ANZSIL Oceans and International Environmental Law Interest Group Co-Chairs: Camille Goodman (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Holly Matley (email@example.com)
