Conference: Energy at Sea: Old Problems, New Challenges

Tomorrow and Friday, October 22-23, 2015, the Faculty of Law of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens will host a conference on "Energy at Sea: Old Problems, New Challenges." The program is here. Here's the idea:
The conference aims to comprehensively address the contemporary challenges of energy activities in the marine environment. We will consider the multiple facets and problems of the legal framework of energy at sea, ranging from the preliminary yet imperative question of maritime delimitation to issues of energy investment and energy production as well as the potential conflict of energy activities with other uses of the sea. The final goal is to approach energy at sea from an integrated perspective, combining knowledge from several disciplines, including the academia, policy-making and practice, with the view to making a decisive contribution to our understanding of current trends and challenges.
