A new Commonwealth paper examines who should be held responsible if deep-sea mining in international waters causes environmental damage.

Written by Hannah Lily, Legal Adviser in the Commonwealth’s Oceans and National Resources team, it is part of an eight-part series produced in collaboration with the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) and the Secretariat of the International Seabed Authority (ISA).  All eight instalments will examine legal liability issues for future scenarios of seabed mining in waters beyond national jurisdiction.
