Published: 18 December 2019

On 28 November, IML director Andrew Serdy, representing the Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute, delivered the keynote address for the session on Ocean Health and Governance at the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Maritime University international seminar, A Comprehensive Maritime Outlook for Sustainable Development of Bangladesh, held in Dhaka.

A few days later, on 2 December, he delivered a paper entitled “The Long Grass at the North Pole”, about the likely delay in determining which State(s) will have continental shelf jurisdiction over the seabed at 90 degrees North, at the 12th Polar Law Symposium, which took place in Hobart at the University of Tasmania's Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies.  While in Hobart, Andrew also gave evidence by videolink to a hearing of the Australian Senate's Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Committee in its current inquiry into Australia’s declarations restricting its acceptance of the jurisdiction of certain international courts and tribunals over disputes concerning maritime boundaries, taking up the Committee's invitation following his written submission to it in October 2019.
