How can law facilitate adaptive management of marine ecosystems without overlooking important rule of law values, such as predictability, legal certainty, consistency and coherence and public participation
Challenges and Opportunities for the Arctic and Beyond
The Arctic is a large and vulnerable area, and the number of ships in the Arctic is increasing. It is therefore important that the emergency preparedness for acute oil pollution is high.
Professor All Pozdnakova heads the work of the Nordic Institute of Maritime Law in connection with oil spill preparedness in the Arctic.
The purpose of the colloquium is to discuss the organization of ecosystem-based management in the Arctic, in particular when the ecosystems extend beyond national jurisdictions. Challenges relate to the ongoing negotiations on bio-diversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction, as these must be addressed independently.

The Arctic presents a number of possibilities and challenges beyond what we encounter further south. These possibilities and challenges call for policies of different kinds.
This research project is the second book project undertaken by the Oslo Law of the Sea Forum, OSLOS.
There has been an increasing interest in the public aspects of maritime law over the past decade at the Scandinavian Institute of Maritime Law. As from 2013, the Institute has teamed up with a few key partners and has formalized the international co-operation in the Oslo Law of the Sea Forum.
The safety at sea project deals with legal issues connected with safety at sea. What opportunities have governments to influence safety of ships and oil installations? The main part of the project ended in 2010. Publications and presentations from seminars are published on the project's Norwegian pages.
