The importance of international resources, such as fossil fuels (oil and gas) and metals in the ocean floor and polar regions or the geostationary orbit for satellites, has progressively increased over the last 30 years due to an increasingly globalised world. New technologies, increased need for new resources, climate change and exotic tourism, driven by a tripling of the global economy over the next 30 years, mean that their importance will increase dramatically in the years to come. Management of these increasingly valuable resources is a rapidly developing area of international law that will affect many different areas of commerce and the law in the decades to come. This subject provides a unique opportunity to learn about this rapidly developing area of the law from two international lawyers with practical experience in the field.
