The Centre Days at JCLOS are arranged around the annual visit by the members of the Center’s Scientific Advisory Board, a board set up to advise the Centre on important issues of scientific content.

The board members are world leading experts within the field of Law of the Sea and fisheries from Italy, Canada, UK, Australia and the Netherlands. So, in addition to internal meetings, there will be open presentations of ongoing research and workshops during the Centre Days.

- During the board’s visit, we would like to take advantage of their competence to stimulate to scientific activity, to involve students, and to be a networking arena for internal and external researchers who work with Law of the sea-related topics. It is also a chance to show our work to external visitors, says Ingvild U. Jakobsen, from K. G. Jebsen Centre for the Law of the Sea (JCLOS).

Wonderful oppurtunity

Phd student at JCLOS, Eva Romée van der Marel is looking forward to the event. Together with two other Phd-students, van der Marel will be the host of a workshop called Innovating for change in global fisheries governance, on Friday the 23. September.

- The workshop is a great chance for early career scholars to present their papers to academic leaders in their fields both from JCLOS and external ones, and to meet others who do research around the same topics, van der Marel says.

- It can be difficult to meet other doctoral students working in our field, so this is a wonderful opportunity to create a network and share experiences, says Camille Goodman, co-host of the workshop, and visiting Phd-student from the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia.

 Modern problems meet old laws

At the workshop, the participants will discuss how we address complex and continuously evolving problems – such as illegal fishing for instance – within an established legal framework.

- How can we work with these problems in an innovative way, is the big question, van der Marel explains enthusiastically.

 Welcomes everyone

She underlines that the workshop is open to everyone; also students or researchers from outside the field of Law. 

- It will be interesting for everyone interested in fisheries, van der Marel concludes.
