2014 Seabed Mining Round-table

The Institute hosted an informal roundtable event focused on seabed mining in September 2014. The roundtable featured a short talk followed by a Q & A with one of the Institute’s international collaborators, Katherine Sammler of the University of Arizona. Katherine is currently undertaking her doctoral studies into the governance of seabed mining in the South Pacific, and recently completed several months of research in New Zealand and Fiji. We had an excellent discussion with contributions from members of central government, environmental groups and the minerals industry.
