Analysis of the Obligations in International Law to Environmentally Remediate Munitions Dumped in the Baltic Sea

Völkerrechtliche Tagesthemen: Spotlight (Episode 46)


In this episode of the “Völkerrechtliche Tagesthemen” this lecturer discusses the legal frameworks surrounding sea-dumped chemical weapons (SDCWs) and explores whether states have an international responsibility to protect marine environments from their adverse effects. It highlights the historical practice of disposing of chemical weapons in oceans after world wars and the resulting damage to marine ecosystems, particularly in the Baltic Sea.
