Conference on Operational Maritime Law 2020

The time has arrived for the Centre of Excellence for Operations in Confined and Shallow Waters (COE CSW), in co-sponsorship with the United States Naval War College and in cooperation with the Ministry of National Defence of the Republic of Lithuania, to announce the 8th Conference on Operational Maritime Law!

The overall aim remains unchanged: to specifically identify legal positions among experts which may support current operations and contribute to the planning and executing of prospective operations.

The Conference will be held from 5 to 8 October in the historical and capital city Vilnius, Lithuania. After the great success of previous conferences, we are once again pleased to gather naval operators, legal experts, members of civil society and academics for another interesting, stimulating, and educational exchange of views and for vivid discussions.

This year’s Conference will focus on the topic “Great Powers at Sea” and will feature the following themes:

  • China
  • Russia
  • Rescue of Migrants at Sea
  • Capstone Training: Challenges faced by LEGADs during Real World Operations
