The Research Council of Norway – Norway’s national funding body and one of largest funding bodies in the world, recently approved a new project under its “Russia and the High North/Arctic (NORRUSS)” Program. Dr Nengye Liu will be participating in this three-year project “Regulating Shipping in Russian Arctic Waters: Between international law, national interests and geopolitics” as a co-investigator.
This project was one of two successful projects that will share in total NOK 10 million from the Research Council of Norway. It will be led by the world’s largest law of the sea centre – Jebsen Centre for the Law of the Sea, University of Tromsø / Arctic University of Norway and Fridtjof Nansen Institute (Oslo). Further, the project will gather a number of world leading scholars from University of Oslo, Dalhousie University, Moscow State Institute of International Relations, Far Eastern Federal University of Russia, St.Petersburg State University as well as postdocs to addresses the dynamics of the interrelationship of institutions, processes, and interests with the purpose to study the implication for the future architecture of the governance of Arctic shipping.
