Call for Participation & Abstracts:
13-14 June 2017, Tromsø, Norway
Host institutions: K.G. Jebsen Centre for the Law of the Sea at the Arctic University of Norway, and
Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University, White Plains, New York
The K.G. Jebsen Centre for the Law of the Sea and the Elisabeth Haub School of Law are pleased to
announce our plans to arrange a workshop entitled “Natural Marine Resource Management in a Changing
Climate.” Management of natural marine resources is crucial to economic, social and environmental
development. The workshop seeks to re-examine management approaches of ocean and marine resources
in light of global climate change.
Climate change is altering both the access to, and the need for, protection of natural marine resources.
Because natural marine resource management approaches and practices were developed under relatively
stable climatic conditions in the last century, climate change related effects and implications necessitate a
re-examination of these management and goal setting approaches. Development of legal structures to
respond to climate change impacts will be vital for the ability to conduct sustainable fisheries, and provide
protection of natural resources. This workshop aims to address the shortcomings of the legal and policy
management systems of today, and discuss alternative models and the further development of existing
policies and processes. Relevant issues on which abstracts can be submitted include:
Current legal and regulatory tools – benefits and shortcomings
The complexity of the challenges to achieve sustainable fisheries/marine resource management
Current fishery management response to the effect of climate change
Distributional consequences of climate change impact on migration patterns
Marine management tools, including marine reserves/sanctuaries and ecosystem based management
Alternative regulatory tools such as private environmental governance
Climate change driven re-alignment of the roles and mandates of international law of the sea
The role of native or indigenous people in the domestic climate change adaption strategies
In addition to keynote speeches by invitation from the organizers, the workshop calls for abstracts and
statements of interest from lawyers, scientists, professors, and researchers with a background in law, political
science and/or environmental economics. Based on these submissions the steering committee will invite
speakers to present their papers at the workshop on the above topics. Funding for airfare and lodging is
available for all invited participants.
