The research project 'Accommodating New Interests at Sea: Legal Tools for Sustainable Ocean Governance' (SUSTAINABLEOCEAN) aims to offer a theory of interest and regime interaction in ocean governance. The research question is: how can the law be applied to the future? The project focuses on the interplay between the law of the sea, climate change law and energy law.
This research is funded by the European Research Council (ERC Starting Grant). The project runs from 2015 through 2020. The Principal Investigator is Dr. ir. Seline Trevisanut.
The ERC research project SUSTAINABLEOCEAN is carried out within the Utrecht Center for Water, Oceans and Sustainability Law (UCWOSL) and the Netherlands Institute for the Law of the Sea (NILOS).
