  • Det nye grunnsystemets legitimitet (Det nye kvotesystemet mangler legitimitet på grunn av svak lovgivningsprosess) 

    Arntzen, Svein Kristian (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2021-11-10)
    Med knapt flertall (45 mot 42 stemmer) endret Stortinget den 9. februar 2021 grunnsystemet for deltakelse og tildeling av kvoter i ervervsmessig fiske.
  • A Marine-Biology-Centric Definition of Ocean Connectivity and the Law of the Sea 

    Johansen, Elise; Dahl, Irene Vanja; Lott, Alexander; Nickels, Philipp Peter; Andreassen, Ingrid Solstad (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-11-23)
    The inter-connectedness of marine ecosystems has been repeatedly acknowledged in the relevant literature as well as in policy briefs. Against this backdrop, this article aims at further reflecting on the question of to what extent the law of the sea takes account of or disregards ocean connectivity. In order to address this question, this article starts by providing a brief overview of the notion ...
  • A Co-Created Methodological Approach to Address the Relational Dimension of Environmental Challenges: When Critical Legal Analysis Meets Illustrated Storytelling 

    Poto, Margherita Paola; Porrone, Arianna (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-11-29)
    Environmental education research needs to take into account the relational dimension of the ecological challenges of our time. It requires the development of methodological techniques that prioritize community concerns, and generally foster positive relational dynamics of the research and study group. This leads to the construction of a research and educational approach around the collective and ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Norway - Child Participation in Family Law 

    Nylund, Anna (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2021-07)
    Norway has a population of 5.3 million people, of whom 1.1 million are children, i.e., under the age of 18. Almost half of marriages in the country end in divorce, the others end by the death of one of the partners. In 2018, the number of new mar-riages was 20,949, and there were 10,630 separations and 9,545 divorces. The number of minor children experiencing their par-ents’ divorce was 8,900. To ...
  • The ‘Due Regard’ of Article 234 of UNCLOS: Lessons From Regulating Innocent Passage in the Territorial Sea 

    Solski, Jan Jakub (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-29)
    Article 234 of UNCLOS is in many ways exceptional, but it is not unique in the sense that it grants to the coastal state “complete” legislative power. Arguably, “complete” coastal state jurisdiction exists in the territorial sea for the purposes enumerated in Article 21(1), allowing coastal states to adopt ship reporting systems, pilotage, and other routing measures unilaterally. The analysis of ...
  • Knowledge Integration and Good Marine Governance: A Multidisciplinary Analysis and Critical Synopsis 

    Poto, Margherita Paola; Kuhn, Annegret; Tsiouvalas, Apostolos; Hodgson, Kara Kathleen; Montoya Treffenfeldt, Valentina; Beitl, Christine M. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-25)
    Our research addresses knowledge integration for the good governance of the environment and the oceans: (a) through a comprehensive legal, political science, and anthropological analysis; and (b) by providing an examination of crucial research foci and research gaps in the fields of environmental and marine governance, along the North–South divide. Our subsequent critical synopsis reveals how existing ...
  • Suggestions for a systematic regulatory approach to ocean plastics 

    Poto, Margherita Paola; Elvevoll, Edel O.; Sundset, Monica Alterskjær; Eilertsen, Karl-Erik; Morel, Mathilde; Jensen, Ida-Johanne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-09-16)
    The research investigates the problems and maps the solutions to the serious threat that plastics pose to the oceans, food safety, and human health, with more than eight million tons of plastic debris dumped in the sea every year. The aim of this study is to explore how to better improve the regulatory process of ocean plastics by integrating scientific results, regulatory strategies and action plans ...
  • Havbruksforvaltning mot 2030 – faglig sluttrapport 

    Robertsen, Roy; Mikkelsen, Eirik Inge; Karlsen, Kine Mari; Solås, Ann-Magnhild; Hersoug, Bjørn; Tveterås, Ragnar; Misund, Bård; Dahl, Irene Vanja; Osmundsen, Tonje Cecilie; Sørgård, Bjørn (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2020-12-11)
    Prosjektet var organisert med fire delprosjekter, på hhv. produksjon, arealforvaltning, samarbeid og scenarioer med tanke på utviklingen fram mot 2030. • I 2030 bør samfunnet ha etablert andre reguleringsmekanismer på lokalitets- og områdenivå som regulerer mer direkte i forhold til biosikkerhet og miljøeffekter. Slike mekanismer kan bl.a. omfatte en ny konsesjonsordning (tillatelse) for lukkede ...
  • Jordinndelingene i Finnmark: var de Norges eldste offentlige utskiftinger? 

    Ravna, Øyvind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-05-31)
    Den har vært antatt at det i Finnmark i eldre tid ikke eksisterte jordfellesskap eller teigblanding, da all jord tilhørte staten eller Kongen. Dermed var det heller ikke behov for utskiftning. Finnmark ble eksempelvis utelatt da Utskiftningsvæsenet ble opprettet i Norge i 1859, samtidig som historien forteller at den første utskiftningsformannen ble tilsatt i Finnmark i 1938. Det finnes imidlertid ...
  • Suggesting an Extensive Interpretation of the Concept of Novelty That Looks at the Bio-Cultural Dimension of Food 

    Poto, Margherita Paola; Morel, Mathilde (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-04-30)
    “Novel food” in the European Union’s (EU) legal terms refers to any food that was not used for human consumption to a significant degree within the EU before 15 May 1997 (Regulation 2015/2283/EU (2015)). Placing novel food on the market requires a safety assessment when such novelty is ascertained, with the consequent need of an authorization procedure that is not required for food traditionally ...
  • What can we learn from Indigenous Peoples Law and Methodology ? Que podemos aprender com o direito indigena e a metodologia? 

    Poto, Margherita; Parola, Giulia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020)
    Objective: The paper analyses the deep contributions of Indigenous knowledge on enriching and encouraging change to laws and research and training the Western legal systems to listen to other voices that have been silenced for centuries. Methodology: The argumentation developed in the paper is based on interdisciplinary research (intertwining social and legal reflections on the three principles ...
  • The Genesis of Article 234 of the UNCLOS 

    Solski, Jan Jakub (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-02-24)
    Article 234 is exceptional regarding its wording and placement in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), as well as in its historical background. The Arctic provision has given rise to divergent interpretations regarding the conditions for invoking it, the limitations on the authority under Article 234, and its spatial scope of application. It has served as a justification for ...
  • Maritime Security Threats and the Passage Regime in the Bab el-Mandeb 

    Lott, Alexander (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-06-21)
    The strait of Bab el-Mandeb separates Africa from the Arabian Peninsula and is an important element in the connection of the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea with the Indian Ocean. The Suez Canal interlinks the Mediterranean with the Red Sea, while the Bab el-Mandeb connects the Red Sea with the Indian Ocean. In Arabic, Bāb al-Mandab stands for “the gate of tears” (Encyclopaedia Britannica), which ...
  • What can we learn from indigenous peoples law and methodology? 

    De Gregorio, Valentina; Parola, Giulia; Porrone, Arianna; Poto, Margherita Paola; Tsiouvalas, Apostolos (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021)

  • The EFTA Court and International Law 

    Helmersen, Sondre Torp (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-05-18)
    The EFTA Court has on numerous occasions faced arguments based on international law rules that exist outside the EEA system, and it has dealt with such arguments in disparate ways. The Court is receptive to arguments based on the European Convention on Human Rights, while flatly refusing to engage with arguments based on other treaties. This article outlines the Courtʼs practice in such cases and ...
  • Norske domstoler og samisk rett 

    Ravna, Øyvind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-06-21)
    "[...] I likhet med Sametinget har også Domstolkommisjonen satt fokus på samenes situasjon i domstolene (i NOU 2019: 17 og NOU 2020: 11) og etterlyst innsikt og kunnskap hos dommere og den enkelte domstol på samerettens område. Det gjenstår å se hvordan domstolene – og særlig vår høyeste rett – vil besvare bestillingene fra Sametinget og Domstolkommisjonen."
  • The Passage Regimes of the Kerch Strait—To Each Their Own? 

    Lott, Alexander (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-24)
    This study explores the passage regimes of the Kerch Strait and its adjacent maritime areas in the context of current arbitration proceedings between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. It ascertains that conflicting sovereignty claims over Crimea might lead to strait states and user states alike retaining their different approaches to the passage regime of the Kerch Strait. Thus, the regimes of ...
  • Finnmarkskommisjonen justerer kursen 

    Ravna, Øyvind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-02-02)
    Finnmarkskommisjonen er opprettet for å utrede rettigheter til land og vann i Finnmark. Den har i dag fullført seks utredninger. Vurderingene og konklusjonene i de fem første rapportene er så vidt like når det gjelder kollektive rettigheter at de kan sies å være «skåret over samme lest». I desember 2019 la kommisjonen fram sin sjette utredning, rapport felt 4 Karasjok. Denne utredningen bryter i ...
