Protection of the last frontiers - Why should Sweden be politically engaged in the deep sea and Antarctica?

Research profile seminar

There are a lot of international conventions, informal and formal legislative "bodies" where Sweden is engaged. In our immediate surroundings we find OSPAR and HELCOM.
BBNJ and CCAMLR are two other "bodies" where Sweden currently contribute. What are they and why has Sweden committed to contribute to this work, far away from the shallow waters surrounding our coastlines? In this seminar I will give a brief overview of the history and current areas of conflicts within BBNJ and CCAMLR.

This talk links Sustainable Development Goal 14 (life below water) with goal 10 (reduced inequalities).
