Mathilde Morel

PhD Student in Law

Job description

Mathilde holds an LLM in law and an LLM in International law of the sea from UiT The Arctic University of Norway and is currently a PhD student at the Faculty of Law and the Norwegian Centre for the Law of the Sea (NCLOS) at UiT. In her doctoral thesis, she investigates how legal regulations can contribute to a sustainable transition of the Norwegian aquaculture industry as a socio-technical system. In the project, Mathilde looks in particular at key legal issues arising from the exploitation of new species from lower trophic levels (e.g. seaweed, kelp, mussel, microalgae, sea cucumber and sea urchin), either directly for human consumption or as feed ingredients in fish farming. The goal is to map how  current regulations contribute to and what potential lies in the use of regulations as tool on the road to more sustainable food production from the Norwegian aquaculture industry.
