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.
