Volterra Fietta Seminar: Fair and Equitable Deep Seabed Mining - sharing deep seabed mining's financial and other benefits. Under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (?UNCLOS?) activities in the Area, i.e., the seabed and ocean floor and subsoil thereof beyond the limits of national jurisdiction, must be carried out for the benefit of mankind as a whole.

This seminar will address the various issues arising from the fair and equitable distribution of deep seabed mining?s financial and other benefits, including as they pertain to the notion of equitable distribution, the transfer of technology, the Enterprise and the Deep Seabed Mining Code.
The speakers will be Mr Eden Charles from the University of West Indies Faculty of Law, Professor Dale Squires from the University of California San Diego, Mr Thembile Joyini from the International Seabed Authority and Ms Florentine Vos, senior associate at Volterra Fietta.
