The ICE LAW Project investigates the potential for a legal framework that acknowledges the complex geophysical environment in the world’s frozen regions and explores the impact that an ice-sensitive legal system would have on topics ranging from the everyday activities of Arctic residents to the territorial foundations of the modern state.

The conference will feature the following elements:

  • ICE LAW subproject leaders will discuss findings from the workshops and community meetings that they have been holding for the past three years.
  • Four keynote speakers will share their thoughts on topics that join the physical and regulatory environments of the Arctic.
  • The ICE LAW conference will be held in conjunction with the first annual Summer School of the DurhamARCTIC programme, an interdisciplinary training initiative for PhD students and early career researchers. Funding will be available for eligible PhD students and Early Career Researchers to attend this joint event.

The conference will run from 1700 on Thursday 25 April through noon on Saturday 27 April, and will be free of charge.
