Table 2 International Law

Approximately 66°30’N. Land covered by ice and snow.
The northeast region of the earth- Arctic area. There are many unknown problems that need to be solved.

One of the biggest primary resources is the sea. That being said, with the detrimental human activities such as abusing of resources, Earth remains to be continuously damaged. Additionally, even under the regulation of the ICJ(International Court of Justice), there are still many unsolved disputes regarding sea territories. For instance, the sovereignty of the Arctic is still a big concern of international society. According to these issues, this table will mainly focus on enacting the Arctic issues specifically focused on the environment and the law regime. What kind of legal framework should we make in order to fit the current situation? How do we find a balance point between the state's interest(based in Japan) and the sustainable development goals?
Let’s be the first polar bear to explore the unknown!
