“Bandung is a city surrounded by mountains. We have neither sea nor shores, however Indonesian contributions to the international law arrangement on sea sparks from this very city.  Years ago, Mochtar Kusumaatmadja, our great teacher and the most prominent Indonesian legal scholar on the law of the Sea, struggled in the negotiation of UNCLOS 1982.  Most of his works on the field were resulted from his exertion of researches and studies in Bandung.

 

Now, the tradition continues..”

THE CONFERENCE

The advancement of technology and the vital role of the blue economy have contributed to the increasing maritime activities and jurisdictional claims in many parts of the world oceans. Against the backdrop, global communities saw the increasing development of artificial islands within and beyond national jurisdictions. These artificial islands function as tools to tap economic benefits from the oceans, as well as means of jurisdictional claims. In the quest of a rule-based prevention and settlement of maritime dispute, many claimants conform to the UNCLOS rules, as the constitution of the ocean.

To address the above questions, the Indonesian Centre for Law of the Sea (ICLOS), Faculty of Law, Universitas Padjadjaran organizes a two-day international seminar, titled “UNCLOS and Question of Artificial Island Beyond National Jurisdiction.”
