Conservation or Claim? The Motivations for Recent Marine Protected Areas

A paper by Professor David D Caron and me concerning marine protected areas has been posted to SSRN as part of the Transnational Law Institute’s Think! series. The paper analyses the 2015 outcome of the Mauritius-UK arbitration concerning the Chagos marine protected area, developments in the South China Sea and the ongoing efforts to conserve the high seas. The paper was presented at a Law of the Sea Institute conference in 2015 and will be included in a forthcoming edited LOSI collection.
