Research questions

In his current research, Erik van Doorn focuses on mineral and living resources and the legal implications of marine spatial planning. Research questions are:

  • To what extent can legal principles contribute to a better management of resources on the high seas and on the ocean floor?
  • How should one incorporate environmental risk assessments in the extraction of marine resources?
  • Which rules (might) straddle the separation between the atmosphere and the ocean?
  • Is there a legal obligation to restore marine ecosystems?
