This presentation was part of the ‘ASEAN Dialogue on International Law: Strengthening the Rule of Law in the Region on International Law of the Sea’, an event that was organised by the Centre for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS) and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Indonesia.

The IISTL is renowned for its expertise in commercial aspects of maritime law and with the aid of the most recent appointments is now active in public maritime and oil and gas law.
