The objective of JCLOS is to assess how the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and other international legal instruments and domestic implementing legislation that together form the law of the sea are responding to both new and existing challenges in order to ensure sustainable development and peaceful utilisation of the oceans in the 21st Century.
JCLOS is coordinated by UiT, The Arctic University of Norway, with FNI as national consortium partner.

FNI’s main contribution to the centre is within the work package entitled Fundamental Challenges for the Law of the Sea. From a fundamental perspective, the research within this work package focuses on two areas.
First, it looks at the driving factors for the development of the law of the sea, including state practice, the role and decision-making of international institutions and the role and significance of international courts and tribunals.
Second, the research focuses on the interaction of the law of the sea with other branches of public international law, such as international trade law, human rights and international criminal law.
FNI also contributes to several of the other work packages at the Centre, with research on areas such as maritime boundaries and outer limits, international navigation and marine environmental protection. While the Arctic is an important focus area, the research is not limited to Arctic issues, but law of the sea in general.
