The video of my plenary lecture at the October 2013 Arctic Circle conference has now been posted. In this talk, I argue for the territorial sea option as a ‘middle route’ through the Northwest Passage.
Notwithstanding Ambassador Hedberg’s introduction, I am proposing that the Northwest Passage be classified as Canada‘s territorial sea, not the US’. The lecture was presented at the inaugural meeting of the Arctic Circle group, a meeting that I’ve written about previously.
An expanded version of the talk will be published in Ocean Development & International Law in February 2014.
