The video "Selling out seas and oceans" is the third video out of a series of six videos. The video describes the different freedoms of the high seas, e.g.maritime shipping, laying submarine cables and pipelines as well as the construction of artificial islands and other installations. It also shows that these freedoms are not unlimited and how this can be achieved - e.g. through international law, UNCLOS and the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
The videos are produced in the context of the German Science Year 2016*17 - Seas and Oceans of the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF). Further information may be found at: www.isrim.de/scienceyear.
