The Role of International Courts in Protecting Environmental Commons

Monica Feria-Tinta joined an expert round table on “The Role of International Courts in Protecting Environmental Commons”, convened by PluriCourts, the IUCN World Commission on Environmental Law and the Environmental Law Program at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, William S. Richardson School of Law, Honolulu on 9th November.

Monica’s contribution focused on the role of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) and the law of the sea, in protecting environmental commons within and beyond national jurisdictions, by comparison to the law and procedure before the International Court of Justice both in contentious and advisory proceedings, and other tribunals.  Her presentation explored inter-state contentious proceedings brought by injured parties, as well as the notion of other ‘interested parties’.

This was a high-level thought-leadership discussion in the area, of interest to Sovereign states, legal advisors to States, and practitioners called upon to advise on inter-state disputes raising environmental law issues and natural resources.

The round table exchanges will result in a series of papers to be published in an edition in the University of Hawaii Law Review.

Other speakers included Professor Christina Voigt (University of Oslo), Professor Daniel Bodansky (Arizona State University), Justice Michael Wilson (Hawai’i Supreme Court), and Professor Markus Gehring (University of Cambridge).
