Solène Guggisberg, based at the Netherlands Institute for the Law of the Sea (NILOS) and the Utrecht Centre for Water, Oceans and Sustainability Law is awarded the Gerard J. Mangone Prize 2019 for her article on the EU Regulation on the external fishing fleets

The Gerard J. Mangone Prize is awarded annually to the author of the best contribution published in the International Journal of Marine and Coastal Law. Solène Guggisberg received this prize for her article “The EU’s Regulation on the Sustainable Management of External Fishing Fleets: International and European Law perspectives” that was published in 2019 in volume 34(2).

The article examined the European Union’s Regulation on the sustainable management of external fishing fleets. This recent piece of legislation reinforces the framework under which authorisations are granted to EU vessels desiring to fish outside of EU waters and can generally be seen as an improvement on the regulation it replaces.
