Seminar series on delimitation agreements and sovereignty claims

A New Seminar Series on Delimitation agreements, Sovereignty, and Jurisdiction Claims: Current Trends, Recent Cases and Future Perspectives.

The seminar series seeks to explore contemporary challenges pertaining to the intersection of different normative regimes, variability in selection of negotiation, arbitration, or use of international tribunals for peaceful dispute settlement, the role of international and regional organizations, the interests of private actors and off shore projects, and the tension between sovereign rights and sustainable use of the global  commons. As offshore natural resources are a central driver in disputes and agreements of this kind, it is important to examine specific topics within natural resources law.

The series is co-organised by the Research Group on Natural Resources Law , the Research Group on International Governance  , and Research Group on Human Rights in Armed Conflict, Peace and Security Law of the University of Oslo, Faculty of Law.

What can we learn from the recent maritime delimitation agreements for the way States deal with maritime claims? How does this affect non-State actors' rights? Are we witnessing a shift in the manner we interpret the law of the sea, notably under new pressures for accsess to natural resources? Those are some of the questions we will discuss during this seminar.
