Arron Honniball is a Ph.D. Candidate at Utrecht University, specialising in the jurisdiction framework of public international law. He obtained his Bachelor of Laws from University College London (First-class honours, 2011), and Masters of Public International Law from Utrecht University (Cum Laude, 2013).

As part of the UNIJURIS project, Arron is examining the use of port state jurisdiction to regulate extraterritorial conduct of global/regional/individual concern.

The project investigates international law governing extraterritorial port state jurisdiction (PSJ), when enforcing unilateral conservation measures, or regional measures against non-parties. Whilst applied within its territory, PSJ can potentially regulate extraterritorial conduct. Regimes of jurisdiction, law of the sea and international trade law govern such state authority. Having established the governing framework, the project examines the relationship from an alternative perspective, i.e. whether PSJ practice has adjusted the legal framework. Finally unilateralism and current PSJ enforcement powers, as sustainability tools, are evaluated. The focus throughout is fisheries regulation of areas beyond the maritime zones of the applicable coastal state.

Arron is being supervised by prof. dr. Cedric Ryngaert & co-supervised by prof. dr. Erik Molenaar and dr. Seline Trevisanut. He is a member of the Netherlands Institute for the Law of the Sea (NILOS), and the Utrecht Centre for Water, Oceans and Sustainability Law (UCWOSL).
