International Boundaries and Transboundary Resources
Professional Training Workshop
18-20 October 2017
New York, USA
Many of the world’s international boundaries run through areas rich in natural resources, for which there is ever-increasing competition. Most States agree in principle that transboundary resources should be shared in an equitable manner and managed as efficiently as possible. However, in practice it is often very difficult to establish effective regimes that achieve these goals.
Control over natural resources is also an issue that underlies many unresolved inter-State disputes concerning sovereignty over territory, maritime areas associated with that territory, and international boundaries on land and at sea.
Led by a team of expert tutors, this innovative workshop will identify strategies and tools for the effective management of transboundary resources on land and at sea. This will cover issues arising between States, and issues arising between States and companies wishing to exploit resources in both delimited and undelimited areas. This workshop will also address inter-State disputes affecting areas where there are, or are thought to be, hydrocarbons or other natural resources. In particular, it will address recent developments arising from the resolution of disputes on these subjects by negotiation, conciliation, arbitration and litigation.
We are delighted to be partnering with Freshfields LLP on this workshop. Freshfields will also host this workshop at their offices in New York.
The cost of the workshop will be £1,850 per participant. This fee does not include accommodation.
