HIELC 2016 on April 15/16, 2016

After two successful conferences in recent years, the third Hamburg International Environmental Law Conference (HIELC 2016) will take place at the Bucerius Law School on April 15/16, 2016 under the title „A Sea Change for Sustainable Ocean Resource Governance”.

Keeping the fragile balance between the economically efficient use of ocean resources and the preservation of the ocean’s ecosystem, is one of the most challenging tasks International Environmental Law faces in the 21st century. The HIELC 2016 will address three key aspects of these conflicting interests: deep sea mining, marine energy generation, seabed pipeline and cable systems.

High ranking experts from all over the world will address these crucial issues in their presentations and in the subsequent working groups.

Furthermore, the conference offers a forum to international and interdisciplinary academics and practitioners to share their insights.
