The Netherlands Institute for the Law of the Sea (NILOS) and the Utrecht Center for Water, Oceans and Sustainability Law (UCWOSL) of Utrecht University, in collaboration with the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ), are organizing the workshop “Non-use measures for global goods and commons in international law”, which will take place on 8-9 May 2023 in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The workshop aims to be a platform for discussion for the development of an edited volume.
Most resource management measures at the international level focus on the conditions under which use of some resources is allowed. In certain cases, however, States decide to adopt and implement non-use measures, i.e., measures that ban a certain use altogether or restrict (certain types of) use in certain areas. With the increasing pressure on natural resources, in particular those considered global goods and commons, and in order to implement the precautionary approach, such measures might need to be further promoted and adopted.
The workshop intends to look at a selection of non-use measures (e.g., bans, moratoria, closed areas) to better understand how specific non-use measures were adopted (or not) and with what effects, and to consider the potential for success of proposals currently under discussion or consideration. Non-use measures related to four themes will be discussed: marine living resources, Antarctica, areas beyond national jurisdiction at sea, and the atmosphere and outer-space.
The deadline to submit an abstract is 31 July 2022.

The governing bodies of the IOPC Funds meet two or three times per year in order to fulfil the requirements set out under Article 18 of the 1992 Fund Convention and Article 16 of the Supplementary Fund Protocol. Under those Articles, the governing bodies are required, among other things, to give instructions concerning the administration of the Funds to the Director and to supervise the proper execution of the Conventions and of their own decisions. Further details on the individual governing bodies are provided via the right navigation bar.
Ordinarily, meetings of the IOPC Funds governing bodies are held at the headquarters of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in London, which also houses the IOPC Funds’ offices. However, in the past, the IOPC Funds have had the pleasure of holding sessions of the governing bodies in Morocco (2011), Monaco (2008) and Canada (2007) at the kind and generous invitation of the respective Governments. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the refurbishment of IMO meeting facilities, five sessions of the governing bodies were convened remotely between December 2020 and March 2022. Following the UK Government’s lifting of all COVID-19 restrictions in February 2022 and the completed refurbishment of the main IMO meeting facilities, the October 2022 sessions of the governing bodies were held in person at the IMO headquarters.

Johannesburg, South Africa
South Africa are at the start of merging their immigration and customs agencies to be placed under one roof called the Border Management Agency (BMA). This has led to the local government reviewing best practices and lessons learnt from other nations that have done this or are also thinking of merging the two agencies.
Our Border Management & Technologies Summit Africa show will discuss the latest challenges faced at the borders across Africa with regards to immigration, customs, smuggling, technologies and intelligence.
With many nations across Africa having large and vast land borders where people can cross borders undetected it is important to discuss the current challenges faced to border agencies and where technology can assist nations with their border security needs. Smuggling routes are seen across the length of Africa and many NGOs and governments are working to tackle the organised crimes. To do this governments need to build up strong intelligence and targeting systems to assist immigration, customs and border force officials to combat the illegal smuggling of humans and contraband.
