Nelson Coelho gives lecture on maritime port security at the University of Bristol

On 15 November 2016, UNIJURIS researcher Nelson Coelho gave a lecture to students of the post-graduate unit on Maritime Security at the University of Bristol. This lecture was entitled “port state jurisdiction over maritime security”.

In this lecture, he discussed with the students some multilateral entitlements to port state jurisdiction in the 1974 International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), as amended by the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS), and in the 1988 Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts Against the Safety of Maritime Navigation (SUA). Students were also introduced to other multilateral responses to maritime security challenges at port, namely the 2003 Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI), as well as to the possibility of unilateral jurisdiction.
