Fisheries and the Law of the Sea in the Anthropocene Era
The ‘Associazione di Consulenza in Diritto del Mare’ (ASCOMARE) is pleased to launch the call for papers for the Second Volume of its Yearbook on the Law of the Sea (YLoS). This Volume will focus on fisheries and the law of the sea in the Anthropocene Era. The book aims to provide an influential legal viewpoint on the way the corpus of rules of international law, including those governing maritime spaces and activities, addresses the multi-level and integrated nature of fisheries-related problems and opportunities in the Anthropocene era.
Contributions are sought in respect of articles examining fisheries in respect of one or more of its manifold ‘dimensions’, including human rights, environmental impact, climate change, maritime and social security, and science. This includes an examination of practical challenges, best practices and opportunities connected with the use of new socio-economic models, and regional regulatory mechanisms.
The most insightful contribution will be awarded with a copy of the prestigious Volume II of the “United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982: A Commentary” (Virginia Commentary).
Submissions are welcome both in English and Italian.
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 31 May, 2022
Volume 2 strives to serve as a tool to support the work of international law experts, judicial institutions, policy makers and legal practitioners in the field of fisheries and the law of the sea.
In line with the goal of ASCOMARE to promote knowledge-sharing and facilitate a uniform understanding of the law of the sea in all the regions of the world, the YLoS will be released in a digital open-access version. Open-access allows readers, North and South, to get access to academic knowledge that is normally available behind large paywalls. Authors submitting their applications agree with this publication/open-access policy. Next to the online open-access version, a paper version of the YLoS will also be available for sale.
