Exploring the human element of the oceans: the gender implications of the law of the sea
Thu 25th - Fri 26th May, 2017
Sala delle Lauree, Edificio U6 - Piazza dell'Ateneo Nuovo 1, Milano
The conference, organized by The School of Law of the University of Milano-Bicocca, stems from an empirical consideration: international law of the sea, including maritime law, has been traditionally silent about the role played by women at sea, and this is very much the case still today. The role of women as active agents and participants has been overlooked and international law of the sea still largely qualifies as a “male affair”.
The purpose of the conference is therefore to open up this field of research to the academic and professional communities, by mapping the existing international legal framework and discussing whether existing norms provide adequate protection for both women and men at sea and sufficient tools to strengthen their capacity to engage in a productive manner in this area.
