Research Projects


Oceans in the Nuclear Age

Sponsored by the Institute of International Studies, UC Berkeley and the Ford Foundation

This project seeks to draw together various official documents of international law and other materials to give its users a better understanding of how nuclear weapons, materials, and waste interact with issues surrounding the welfare, use, and future of our oceans.          




Regional Cooperation Against Illegal Fishing in the Pacific Ocean

Co-sponsored with the UC Pacific Rim Research Program

This project seeks to analyze the role of Regional Fishery Management Organizations in responding to the problem of illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) marine fishing activities in the Pacific Ocean and to produce specific recommendations for increasing their effectiveness in this vital aspect of their resource-management role. The project is funded principally by the University of California’s Pacific Rim Research Program and the Institute for Legal Research.
