The President of Iceland gave the welcome speech, and the President of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS), Judge Paik, gave the keynote speech. The event was hosted by the Director of the Iceland Institute for the Law of the Sea, Judge Heidar (ITLOS), and was widely attended by ITLOS Judges, arbitrators, government officials and academics.

She teaches the LLM course on the International Law of the Sea at UCL Laws, and has been teaching at the Rhodes Academy of Oceans Law and Policy since 2017. At the conference, Dr Azaria discussed how tribunals under the Law of the Sea Convention use ‘other rules of international law’. More specifically, she touched on the Chagos Archipelago Arbitration, the South China Sea Arbitration, the Arctic Sunrise Arbitration and the Duzgit Integrity Arbitration.
