About David Langlet

Langlet is the first incumbent of the Chair in Ocean Governance Law that was established at the School of Business, Economics and Law, University of Gothenburg in 2015. The chair, which is partly funded by donations, has its background in the rapid growth of partially competing claims on the sea and its resources, and the attendant need for legal governance towards a sustainable management of the sea and its resouces. The aim is to build a leading research and teaching environment that brings together disciplines such as law of the sea, environmental law and administrative law in order to be able to adequately deal with challenges related to planning and management of the sea in an international, regional and national context.

Langlet is a member of the steering committee of the Swedish Mariculture Research Center, SWEMARC (https://swemarc.gu.se), a principal investigator within Centre for Collective Action Research, CeCAR (https://cecar.gu.se) and co-chair for the Working Group on Balancing Economic, Social and Ecological Objectives within ICES. Between 2015 and 2019 has was Ambassador/Coordinator of Maritime governance in the Maritime Cluster of West Sweden (www.maritimaklustret.se/en/)

He has previously worked as senior lecturer and subject-director of environmental law at the Department of Law, Stockholm University. During 2013/2014 he was a research fellow at the Faculty of Law at Oxford University and Christ Church.

Langlet's research has touched on a wide range of topics in the fields of environmental law, law of the sea, energy law, and international economic law.
