Following the success of its workshops on maritime boundaries in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020, the Centre for International Law (CIL) and the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security (ANCORS) will be co-organising the 2021 CIL-ANCORS e-Training Course on Alternative Resolutions to Maritime Boundary Disputes that will be held via Zoom from Monday, 20 Sept to Friday, 24 Sept 2021, from 9 AM to 3 PM (Singapore time) each day.
This course (programme) is designed for government officials who are responsible for negotiating complex maritime boundary issues with their neighbours, including legal and technical experts, and officers from government ministries. It may also be of interest to academics and practitioners with a special interest in maritime boundaries.
This course is organized in conjunction with the Expanded ASEAN Maritime Forum (EAMF) and enjoys the support of the US Department of State and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Singapore. A certain number of places will be reserved for participants from the EAMF countries, and sponsorships are available for a limited number of participants from some of the EAMF countries.
This year, the course will have a combination of pre-recorded lectures, live lectures, interactive discussions and breakout sessions aimed at enhancing participants’ understanding on the complexities of boundary-making. Participants will be able to test their knowledge during daily practical exercises, where they will be expected to develop national positions based on a hypothetical case.
