Island Lecture Series: What’s Law Got To Do With It! Islands And Their Status In International Law
Dr. Donald Rothwell
Tuesday, Sept 13, 2022 · 7:00pm AST (UTC-3)
Faculty Lounge, SDU Main Building, UPEI

(Hosted by the Institute of Island Studies · Sept 13, 2022)
In the latest installment of the 2022 Island Lecture series, Dr. Donald Rothman explores the international conversation on the legal status of islands. The legal status of islands has increasingly become contested in various parts of the world as a result of the distinction between islands and rocks, and the increasing development of artificial islands. Can international law resolve these issues or just make them more contentious?
