    • The Abkhazian Conflict: A Study on Self-determination and International Intervention 

      Lott, Alexander (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The Crimean conflict in 2014 followed in many respects the pattern of Russia’s previous interventions in a neighbouring state – e.g., the 2008 Georgian conflict. Yet its similarities with the forgotten Abkhazian conflict in 1992–1993 are not widely acknowledged. The principal aim of the study presented was to determine whether Abkhazia had the right to claim statehood and to examine Russia’s actions ...

    • Ansvar for skade forårsaket av rein 

      Ravna, Øyvind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2007)
      Reineiere og bufeholdere har begge objektivt ansvar for skade deres dyr forårsaker. I praksis kan dette ansvaret arte seg ganske ulikt. Reindriftsloven er for tiden under revisjon, og lovutvalget har uttrykt at det erstatningsansvar som reindriftsloven stiller opp, er strengt og meget omfattende. I artikkelen sammenliknes ansvaret for reineiere og bufeholdere, samtidig som det pekes på ulikheter i ...
    • Ansvar for skade forårsaket av rein: om gjerdehold, objektivt ansvar og medvirkning 

      Ravna, Øyvind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-15)
      Reindriftsloven pålegger reineiere et objektivt ansvar for skade rein forårsaket av rein. Ansvaret har røtter tilbake til 1883 og omtales av Reindriftslovutvalget som strengt og meget omfattende. Også bufeholdere har et objektivt ansvar for skade deres dyr forårsaker. I praksis kan imidlertid bufeholderes og reindriftsutøveres ansvar på dette området arte seg nokså ulikt. I 2007 fremmet Samerettsutvalget ...
    • Anthropocentric Ocean Connectivity: A Pluralistic Legal-Regulatory Model 

      Gaunce, Julia Martha; Solski, Jan Jakub; Parlov, Iva; Neves, Maria Madalena das (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-11-23)
      This article proposes a model of anthropocentric ocean connectivity based on the concept of human perspective as location. Within this location, anthropocentrism can be, but is not necessarily, an exclusive or dominant valuation of the human. In fact, conceptions of both anthropocentrism and of ocean connectivity are pluralistic. These and other pluralisms are borne out in this article’s content and ...
    • Application of the Right to Permanent Sovereignty over Natural Resources for Indigenous Peoples: Assessment of Current Legal Developments. 

      Enyew, Endalew Lijalem (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11)
      The right to Permanent Sovereignty over Natural Resources (PSNR) emerged in the era of decolonization. As a reaction to the irresponsible exploitation of natural resources by colonial powers, peoples under colonial rule and newly independent developing states asserted the right to control and dispose of their own natural resources. The UN General Assembly recognized and reinforced these claims ...
    • The Arctic environment and the BBNJ negotiations. Special rules for special circumstances? 

      De Lucia, Vito (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-10-18)
      The question this article wishes to raise, albeit in a preliminary and exploratory manner, is whether or not the Arctic, due to its special ecological circumstances, should be regulated in some special ways within the context of the new BBNJ agreement. Taking as the starting point some of the existing special rules adopted under UNCLOS and the IMO to account for special ecological circumstances, ...
    • An ‘Arctic Strategy’ for Greece? Paving the Way from the Mediterranean to the Pole 

      Tsiouvalas, Apostolos (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-06-29)
      Το εάν η Ελλάδα επηρεάζεται από τις αλλαγές που συμβαίνουν στην Αρκτική παραμένει πέρα από κάθε αμφισβήτηση. Το ερώτημα έγκειται στο εάν η Ελλάδα θα πρέπει σταδιακά να αυξήσει την εμπλοκή της στις υποθέσεις της Αρκτικής και τελικά να αναπτύξει μια σχετική στρατηγική πολιτική για την περιοχή. Η επί του παρόντος Σύνοψη Πολιτικής στοχεύει στη διατύπωση της υπάρχουσας σχέσης της Ελλάδας με την Αρκτική ...
    • Avgjørelsesformene i jordskifteprosessen - med vekt på lovrevisjonen av 1998 og noen utilsiktede virkninger 

      Ravna, Øyvind (Journal article; Peer reviewed; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2005)
      In civil procedure the primary aim of the court is to settle lawsuits. In the land consolidation court procedure, by contrast, the main aim of the court concerns resolving indistinct boundaries and improving property structures. These differences have resulted in different forms of legal decisions in the two court systems. The article gives an overview of similarities and differences between the ...
    • Balancing Agro-Fuels and Food Security on the Tightrope Towards Sustainability 

      Tafesework Geletu, Eden; Poto, Margherita Paola (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The demand for the utilization of agricultural resources for non-food purposes, such as feedstock, has been on the rise globally in recent times. This article seeks to examine the underlying reasons behind the boom in agricultural crops for biofuel feedstock. Cognizant of this peak in demand, the article aims to show how the right to adequate food is being restrained by large-scale land acquisition ...
    • Bare Nature. The Biopolitical Logic of the International Regulation of Invasive Alien Species 

      De Lucia, Vito (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-04)
      There is a general and widespread consensus on the negative impacts of invasive alien species on biological diversity. Invasive alien species are indeed considered a fundamental threat for endemic biological diversity. Their introduction to novel environments is often described, eloquently, as a <i>biological invasion</i>. How is the threat of invasive alien species addressed in international law? ...

      Nylund, Anna (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
    • Barriers to wildlife movement in straits: Problematizing habitat connectivity across marine ecosystems 

      Lott, Alexander (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-05-25)
      The innovative development of the legal regime of straits has prevented the erection of ‘sovereignty-barriers’ to the movement of humans in and above straits. However, it overlooks to a great extent the significance of straits for marine organisms and birds. This article examines if it is necessary to supplement the legal regime of straits with rules that would allow circumnavigating ‘sovereign ...
    • The BBNJ negotiations and ecosystem governance in the arctic 

      De Lucia, Vito (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-12-18)
      The aim of this article is to explore the question of ecosystem governance in the Arctic, in light of the potential implications of the ongoing negotiations towards a new global treaty on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction for ecosystem governance of the Arctic. A new global treaty will have inevitably significant implications for Arctic ...
    • Behovet for en jordskifteutdanning i Nord-Norge 

      Ravna, Øyvind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2009)
      The Norwegian education system has gone through fundamental changes in the last decades. The educational monopoly the University of Life Sciences has had in educating land consolidation judges is proposed removed, and it’s time for innovative thinking. In northern- and parts of mid-Norway, new programmes to educate land consolidation judges can be reasoned not only because of the problems in ...
    • Beskyttelse av fremtidige inntekter 

      Solheim, Stig H. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-08)
      Artikkelen problematiserer beskyttelse av fremtidige inntekter i relasjon til EMDs praksis om eiendomsvern etter EMK P1-1. Foranledningen er at problemstillingen har vært relevant for to nyere høyesterettssaker: HR-2017-2352-A (prostitusjons-saken) og HR-2018-1258-A (Gassled-saken). I prostitusjons-saken ble problematikken oversett, noe som har blitt kritisert. I Gassled-saken ble spørsmålet ...
    • Beyond Borders and States: Modelling Ocean Connectivity According to Indigenous Cosmovisions 

      Poto, Margherita Paola; Enyew, Endalew Lijalem; Tsiouvalas, Apostolos (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-11-23)
      The article describes some common features of Indigenous sea cosmovisions (through examples from Oceania and the Arctic region), from which an understanding of ocean governance rooted in the interconnectedness of all life and the importance of protecting water and people emerges. Hence, the model of ocean (or water) connectivity is characterized by the understanding of ocean-human relationships as ...

      Stewart, Bryce D.; Williams, Chris; Barnes, Richard Alan; Walmsley, Suzannah F.; Carpenter, Griffin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-01-26)
      Fisheries management has been a strongly contested aspect of the UK’s position in the EU since UK accession, with the fshing industry frequently questioning both the efcacy and fairness of arrangements. During the campaign for UK exit (Brexit) from the EU, and the subsequent negotiations of a new legal and political relationship from 2016 to 2020, senior UK political leaders strongly committed to ...
