New book: Talks on the Rotterdam Rules

The Maritime Law Institute has published a new book: Talks on the Rotterdam Rules. In November 2012 the Institute arranged an international maritime law conference in Stockholm in cooperation with Åbo Akademi University. A number of leading international maritime law experts presented papers at the conference on the Rotterdam Rules. Many of the experts participated in the negotiations of the convention and also in the CMI preparatory works. Others have prepared the implementation of the Rotterdam Rules at the national level. The newly published volume contains some of the papers from the conference dealing with issues such as carrier liability, shipper’s obligations and transport documents under the Rotterdam Rules and issues with regard to the implementation of the Rules in the Nordic countries.

The book can be ordered by contacting the research amanuensis Boel Hilding Berggren at the Institute (for contact details see Om Biblioteket). Paperback, SEK 350 (VAT and shipping costs will be added). The book is also distributed through ordinary bookstores.
