Resilience of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea: 40 Years

Coral Reefs

The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS)  adopted in 1982 constitutes a significant accomplishment in international law and the law of the sea. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the adoption of UNCLOS, an international conference will be held on 10 March 2023 in the university campus of the University of Copenhagen. The theme of the conference is ‘Resilience of UNCLOS’. The conference will explore whether and to what extent UNCLOS has resilience to address new challenges that were unknown in 1982.

The speakers include scholars from George Washington University, Oxford University and other European universities.

The conference is free of charge and a participation certificate can be obtained (but must be stated in your registration - they will only be handed out on the day of the conference)
