Please join us for the latest instalment of the Essex Public International Law Lecture Series.
International straits have always been important and strategic shipping routes for sea communication and world trade. Therefore, they received special attention by the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea which tries to balance the different and opposing interests that are centred around straits: those of States using the straits and those of coastal States of the straits. The point of equilibrium has been reached with the introduction of the new regime of the transit passage in addition to the pre-existing regime of innocent passage and through an articulated set of rights and obligations of coastal States bordering the straits whose interpretation pose a continuous challenge to scholars and practitioners.
Ida Caracciolo: Judge of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, Full Professor of International Law and President of the MA Course in “International Relations and Organizations”, University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli”, Member of the Permanent Court of Arbitration, Alternate Arbitrator in the Court of Conciliation and Arbitration of the OECD, member of the Italian Branch of ILA, the European Society of International Law, the Italian Society of International Law, the Italian Society for International Organization.
The Essex Public International Law lecture series is founded, hosted and co-chaired by Dr Meagan Wong and Dr Emily Jones based in the School of Law. This is a weekly lecture series featuring judges of international courts and tribunals, leading academics, and practitioners of international law from governmental service, international organizations, and private practice from across the globe. The series prides itself on building on two important intellectual traditions of international law: formalism and international legal practice, and international legal theory including postcolonial and feminist perspectives.
We welcome all students, academics, practitioners and legal advisors to join us.
You can register here for the event which will be held on zoom.
