Please join the Energy, Environment and Land Use Program, the Energy and Environmental Law Society and the International Law Society for a talk with Xiao Recio-Blanco about the law and the world's oceans.
Xiao is the Director of the Ocean Program at the Environmental Law Institute (ELI). Xiao joined ELI in early 2016 as a staff attorney specialized in ocean resources management. He has conducted legal research on the regulation of small-scale fisheries in developing nations, the implementation of Marine Spatial Planning, the negotiation of maritime boundaries agreements, the creation of transboundary Marine Protected Areas, and the regulation of ocean renewable energy. He has taught seminars on ocean resources management at universities in Europe, Mexico, and the United States. His current research interests include transparency and access to information in international fisheries, legal reforms to make small-scale fisheries more sustainable, the regulatory implementation of area-based management, and the design and enforcement of Marine Protected Areas.
This event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be served.
