This week, AJIL Unbound has published a Symposium on Governing High Seas Biodiversity, edited by Professor Cymie R. Payne. The symposium comes as states prepare to negotiate an international legally-binding instrument on the protection of biodiversity in areas of the seas beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ).

The Symposium is dedicated to the legacy of the late Professor David D. Caron, former Dean of the Dickson Poon School of Law at King’s College London and Judge of the United States-Iran Claims Tribunal, who did so much for the development of oceans law and conservation.

I have contributed to the symposium with a paper on the topic of “Marine Technology Transfer under a BBNJ Treaty: A Case for Transnational Network Cooperation”, online here.
