WASHINGTON, D.C. – Cmdr. James Kraska, JAGC, USN, and faculty member of the International Law Department at the Naval War College, will present a lecture on “Brandishing “Legal Tools” in the Fight Against Piracy and Armed Robbery at Sea” at a Globalization and the Law of the Sea Conference on December 2.
International experts will discuss topics such as “Global Trends in Commercial Shipping,” “Piracy and Terrorism,” “Safety and Navigational Freedom,” and “Emerging Global Ocean Policy Issues” at the three-day event.
The conference is sponsored by Korea Maritime Institute, Seoul, Korea Center for Oceans Law and Policy, University of Virginia School of Law and the Netherlands Institute for the Law of the Sea, Utrecht University, The Netherlands.
The conference will also produce a volume of collaborative writings, and Kraska’s presentation will be the basis for a chapter in a book published by Martinus Nijhof.
