Colloquium: Ecosystem based management 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.
