Law of the Sea and International Marine Environmental Law

The Institute for the Law of the Sea and International Marine Environmental Law (ISRIM) is an independent research institute in Bremen, Germany. It has a transdisciplinary approach and co-operates with different local, national and international science and research institutions.

The mandate of ISRIM is to enhance the conservation and sustainable use of oceans and their resources by conducting scientific research in international law as reflected in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), which provides the legal framework for the conservation and sustainable use of oceans and their resources, as recalled in paragraph 158 of The Future We Want and in goal 14 of the Sustainable Development Goals.
