Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


From 29th October to 31st October 2014, the Institute for Marine & Antarctic Studies at the University of Tasmania, Australia will be hosting the 7th Polar Law Symposium. In a time of rapid change in both geographical and geopolitical arenas, the way we manage the polar regions through international legal mechanisms are of critical importance.

We invite APECS members to follow the proceedings of the conference which will cover various aspects of polar law; including human rights, environmental law, territorial law, with a special focus on the role of Asian states in polar affairs. The program can be found here: polarlaw2014/program
