Dr Mitchell Lennan publishes article on WTO Agreement on Fisheries Subsidies

Dr Mitchell Lennan (AUCEL, ACCPIL) and Dr Stephanie Switzer (University of Strathclyde, Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance) have published an open access article on the recently negotiated World Trade Organization Agreement on Fisheries Subsidies in The International Journal of Marine and Coastal Law.

The article can be read here, and gives a general overview of the Agreement and examines three key provisions: the prohibition of subsidies to (1) illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, (2) the fishing of overexploited stocks, and (3) fisheries on the high seas outside the competence of regional fisheries management organisations. The provisions of the Agreement on special and differential treatment in favour of developing and least-developed countries, as well as notable procedural and institutional features, are also considered. The remaining issues still to be addressed at the WTO are highlighted in conclusion.
