The Prize, £500 of OUP books, is awarded each year for the most thought-provoking and innovative article published in the Journal in that year. All articles published in the Journal are eligible for the award.

The Journal of Environmental Law, published by Oxford University Press, is the leading journal of environmental law in the UK. See http://jel.oxfordjournals.org/ for more details

The article publishes research carried out in relation to De Lucia’s PhD project, about to be submitted.

"I am incredibly honoured to have been awarded this important prize", says Vito De Lucia, who wishes to thank his collegues and advisors who have contributed with comments and guidance.

"This prize is a considerable recognition of his Research", says Tore Henriksen, leader of the K.G.Jebsen Centre for the Law of the Sea at UiT. "We are very happy and proud of De Lucia and wish to congratulate him".

From the committee's motivation:

“This article stood out with its masterful handling of a range of disciplinary approaches to consider an important issue – how we can understand the complexity of the ecosystem approach” and “We felt this paper has the potential to be a landmark paper for years to come and moves forward debate about concepts of environmental management in several interesting ways”
