- More cooperation needed to protect the Arctic
- The Arctic states need to have an efficient collaboration of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) that are connected to each other, in order to protect the vulnerable ecosystems of the Arctic Ocean, says Law of the sea expert from JCLOS in a new book published at Brill.
The fragile Arctic marine environment is under growing pressure from climate change and the prospect of increasing human activity affecting previously untouched areas.
In her new book, Marine Protected Areas in International law – an Arctic Perspective published at Brill, Ingvild Ulrikke Jakobsen, researcher of K.G. Jebsen Centre for the Law of the Sea (JCLOS), argues that the Arctic states need to have an efficient collaboration of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) that are connected to each other, in order to protect the ecosystems and the biodiversity of the Arctic Ocean.
MPAs a legal tool
- The challenges and threats against the biodiversity of the Arctic need to be seen together as a whole. MPAs is a legal tool for a more holistic, integrated ocean management, but it demands more cooperation between the states, Jakobsen argues .
Innovative aspects in international law
Jakobsens book is a part of a series from Brill.
-The monograph of Ingvild Ulrikke Jakobsen is one of the volumes published in the series of Queen Mary Studies in International Law, at Brill/ Matinus Nijhoff. This series strives to publish books which bring an innovative aspect to classical subjects of international law. The authors writing in this series are well-known experts in various fields of international law, whose research opens up new avenues in the analysis international law, says Jakobsens publisher from Brill, Malgosia FItzmaurice.
Innovative and original
- The book of Ingvild Jakobsen fits perfectly in this series as it links classical issues of international environmental law and the law of sea such as shipping and biodiversity within an innovative and original context of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) as a tool to protect marine biodiversity in the fragile Arctic marine environment. Therefore, the monograph has analysed new approaches to classical issues of international law and introduces the reader to a new dimension of well-known aspects of the law of the sea and international environmental law, as well as general international law, says Malgosia Fitzmaurice.
