    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».

  • 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 ...
  • I hvilken grad bør domstolene og rettsvitenskapen utvikle ulovfestede regler på formue- og immaterialrettens område? 

    Løtveit, Bjørn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-03)
    Immaterialretten og den tradisjonelle formueretten har i lang tid hatt et tilknytningsforhold, og dette tilknytningsforholdet har blitt styrket i det siste. Dette skyldes særlig at det i deler av immaterialretten har blitt innført tingsrettslige regler om rettsvern, ekstinksjon og prioritet, basert på det som gjelder for rettighetsregistrering knyttet til fast eiendom. Møtet mellom disse rettsområdene ...
  • Rethinking the Encounter Between Law and Nature in the Anthropocene: From Biopolitical Sovereignty to Wonder 

    De Lucia, Vito (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-22)
    The rise of the idea of the Anthropocene is promoting multiple reflections on its meaning. As we consider entering this new geological epoch, we realize the pervasiveness of humankind’s deconstruction and reconstruction of the Earth, in both geophysical and discursive terms. As the body of the Earth is marked and reshaped, so is its idea. From a hostile territory to be subjugated and exploited through ...

  • New Russian Legislative Approaches and Navigational Rights within the Northern Sea Route 

    Solski, Jan Jakub (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2021-12-13)
    <p>The regulation of foreign navigation in the Northern Sea Route (NSR) has been dominated by the rules of international law applicable to merchant ships only. Neither the domestic set of rules of navigation on the NSR, based on Article 234 of UNCLOS nor the Polar Code applies to State-owned vessels. While the application of Article 234 has so far let Russia evade discussion on the navigational ...

  • Sámi Law: A Methodological Approach 

    Labba, Kristina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-09)

    Ravna, Øyvind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2020-11-19)

I denne ...

If adopted, the ILBI will likely apply to parts of the Arctic Ocean where the Arctic Council has played an important role for ocean ...
  • Snow Crab in the Barents Sea: Managing a Non-native Species in Disputed Waters 

    Henriksen, Tore (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-09)
    The introduction of a new species to the Barents Sea raises questions as to the rights and duties of states under the law of the sea to exploit, manage and conserve the species. This paper discusses three of them. The first question is whether the snow crab qualifies as a sedentary species. The entitlements and competence of states in respect of living marine resources depend on the location and the ...
