UNITAR is delighted to start the new "International Law in Focus" workshop series that will explore cutting-edge legal topics.The first topic to focus on will be the Law of the Sea as governed by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).
About this course
The Law of the Sea touches not only upon matters of state’s responsibilities and ability to use the world’s oceans but also refers to important environmental matters and addresses questions of the use of marine natural resources. With major trading routes leading over the earth’s oceans, the economic and business aspects are of keen interest to states and the private sector alike.
The core workshop times of the International Law in Focus Series are 3 to 7 pm Geneva time. The respective e-workshops will be conducted via the platform Zoom and will be facilitated by an expert on the theme. The material presented in the workshop will be interactive and assignments will be given for participants to further advance their knowledge. At the end of the week, participants will be asked to complete a knowledge assessment.
The International Law in Focus Series is aimed at students and professionals seeking a deeper understanding of international law.
At the end of this session participants will be able to:
- Explain key actors and instruments of the International Law of the Sea;
- Describe the historic development and current challenges of the Law of the Sea;
- Outline the dispute settlement mechanisms available under Law of the Sea.
