Workshop on “Ocean Commons. Common Heritage, Marine Genetic Resources and Biodiversity Conservation in Areas beyond National Jurisdiction”, Italy, Rome, 13 June 2017

Workshop on “Ocean Commons. Common Heritage, Marine Genetic Resources and
Biodiversity Conservation in Areas beyond National Jurisdiction“, Italy,
Rome, 13 June 2017.
The workshop intends to debate some of the key questions being raised and
discussed within the context of the ongoing preparatory committee of the
United Nations tasked with delivering a draft text containing elements for
an international legally-binding instrument under the United Nations
Conventions for the Law of the Sea on the conservation and sustainable use
of marine biological diversity of areas beyond national jurisdiction. One
of the key points under discussion hinges of the legal status of marine
genetic resources in both the high seas and in and on the Area, including,
importantly, a legal regime for the access and the equitable sharing of
benefits arising from their commercial utilization. Questions of
environmental protection, distributional justice and economic opportunities
intersect sometimes in conflictual ways. This workshop intends to
highlight  and explore some of these questions, directly, or through
comparative and theoretical reflections. Presentations, held by experts in
the field, will both contribute to the advancement of the academic debate
and provide useful input to the ongoing negotiations.
