Submarine Cables (2009-)

CIL has organized two regional Workshops on Submarine Cables, the 2009 Workshop on Submarine Cables and Law of the Sea in 2011 Workshop on the Protection of Submarine Cables. The Workshop Reports, PowerPoint Presentations and other information on the Workshops can be found under “CIL Organised Events”. In the course of preparing for these Workshops, CIL staff undertook a significant amount of research on the legal regime governing submarine cables, which can be found under “Other CIL Resources”.

CIL intends to continue its work on submarine cables and law of the sea and to make relevant materials on submarine cables available on its website with the hope that law of the sea scholars, government officials and cable industry experts will find them useful.
