Seminars and conferences in English and other foreign Languages are published here. After the events we often publish the lecturers' presentations.
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.
PhD candidate Julius Rumpf at the Scandinavian Institute of Maritime Law is presenting his PhD project for midway assessment.

Introduction by Kjersti Lohne
These waters have become contentious because of seabed petroleum exploration and fisheries undertaken pursuant to treaties between Morocco and the EU, Japan, and Russia. These activities have been protested by the territory’s government-in-exile, the Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic.
Is law fit for the purpose of protecting oceans against increasing pressures and demands?
This two-day conference aims at analyzing new trends in the law of the sea, international environmental law, and related fields of law, and discussions related to the effectiveness of certain tools and mechanisms.
Introduksjon ved professor Erik Røsæg
The interest in autonomous ships has grown exponentially in the past few years. Only five or so years ago, the prospect of unmanned and autonomous vessels sailing on the seas was not considered to be realistic, while now the debate centers on when and in what format and pace the development will take place. Law has a key role to play in this development and legal obstacles are often singled out as principal barriers to a rapid introduction of new technologies in this field. In a few years autonomous ships has turned from a non-issue to one of the main regulatory topics being addressed at the International Maritime Organization (IMO), but the discussion is still in its infancy.
Increased reliance on automation for tasks that have traditionally been undertaken by ships' crews raises interesting legal question across the whole spectrum of maritime law. From the law of the sea and IMO Conventions, which are crucial for enabling autonomy to be introduced in the first place, to essentially any aspect of private maritime law, including transport contracts, collision, salvage and marine insurance, the development will entail fundamental alterations to current practices.
