Aquaculture Law and Policy - Global, Regional and National Perspectives (Hardcover): Nigel Bankes, Irene Dahl, David L.... Aquaculture Law and Policy - Global, Regional and National Perspectives (Hardcover)
Nigel Bankes, Irene Dahl, David L. VanderZwaag
R3,029 Discovery Miles 30 290 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

With aquaculture operations fast expanding around the world, the adequacy of aquaculture-related laws and policies has become a hot topic. This much-needed book provides a comprehensive guide to the complex regulatory seascape. Split into three distinct parts, the expert contributors first review the international legal dimensions, including chapters on the law of the sea, trade, and access and benefit sharing for aquatic genetic resources. Part Two discusses how the EU and regional bodies, such as the North Atlantic Salmon Conservation Organization (NASCO), have addressed aquaculture development and management whilst the final part contains twelve national case studies exploring how leading aquaculture producing countries have been putting sustainability principles into practice. These case studies focus on implementation approaches and challenges, in particular emphasizing ongoing national struggles in attaining effective aquaculture zoning and marine spatial planning. Students and scholars of environmental law and politics will find this contemporary volume an invaluable addition to the limited academic literature critiquing aquaculture law and policy. Policy makers, international bodies and NGOs will also find its insights particularly informative when ensuring sustainable aquaculture regulation and development.

The Proposed Nordic Saami Convention - National and International Dimensions of Indigenous Property Rights (Hardcover, New):... The Proposed Nordic Saami Convention - National and International Dimensions of Indigenous Property Rights (Hardcover, New)

In 2005 an expert group representing the governments of Norway, Sweden and Finland, and the Saami parliaments of these countries agreed upon a draft text of a Nordic Saami Convention. Key parts of the text deal with the recognition of Saami land and resource rights. More recently the three governments have embarked on negotiations to move from this draft text to a final convention that may be adopted and ratified by all three countries. Negotiations commenced in the Spring of 2011 and should be completed within five years. This collection of essays explores the national and international dimensions of indigenous property rights and the draft Convention which recognises the Saami as one people divided by international boundaries. Part one of the book seeks to provide a global and theoretical context for these developments in the Nordic countries, with a series of essays dealing with the moral and legal reasons for recognising indigenous property interests and different conceptualisations of the relationship between indigenous peoples and settler societies, including recognition, reconciliation and pluralism. Part two of the book examines some international legal issues associated with the Convention, including the background to the Convention. Part three turns to examine aspects of the recognition of Saami property interests in each of the three Nordic states, while Part four provides some comparative experiences, examining the recognition of indigenous property rights in a number of jurisdictions, including Canada, Australia and a number of South American states. An additional essay considers gender issues in relation to indigenous property rights.

The Rights of Indigenous Peoples in Marine Areas (Hardcover): Stephen Allen, Nigel Bankes, Oyvind Ravna The Rights of Indigenous Peoples in Marine Areas (Hardcover)

R1,819 Discovery Miles 18 190 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The question of what rights might be afforded to indigenous peoples has preoccupied the municipal legal systems of settler states since the earliest colonial encounters. Sustained initiatives by international institutions have seen national legal regimes and the international legal order accept that they possess an extensive array of legal rights. However, despite this, claims advanced by indigenous peoples relating to rights to marine spaces have been met with marked lack of receptiveness. This book offers the first sustained study of these rights and their reception. Taking a three part approach, it looks firstly at the international aspects of indigenous entitlement in marine spaces. It then goes on to explore specific country examples, before looking at some cross cutting themes of crucial importance to the question. Drawing on the expertise of leading scholars, this is a rigorous and long overdue exploration of a significant lacuna in indigenous peoples' rights.

Energy from the Sea - An International Law Perspective on Ocean Energy (Paperback): Nigel Bankes, Seline Trevisanut Energy from the Sea - An International Law Perspective on Ocean Energy (Paperback)

One of the main challenges of our time is to be able to guarantee energy supply at a reasonable price. Policy makers, international institutions and the private sector increasingly look to the oceans as a significant source of energy. The Law of the Sea provides the legal framework within which any maritime activity is performed and strikes a balance between the multiple activities that can take place simultaneously in the same maritime zone. This volume addresses some of the main legal challenges raised by the expansion of the ocean energy sector and its consequences for the relevant international normative and institutional framework. Some of the major themes explored include energy sources and the competition for marine space, energy security, private actors and corporate social responsibility, fragmentation or integration, evolution and reinforcement of international law and liability.
