Research Overview



  • Law of the Sea, marine environmental law, oceans governance, maritime regulation and enforcement, biodiversity conservation in marine areas beyond national jurisdiction, climate change and the oceans. 



    The principal objective of Professor Warner’s past and current research is to make a beneficial, practical and enduring contribution to the preservation of a balanced ocean in which multiple uses are accommodated in an environmentally sustainable manner. She has made significant theoretical and applied contributions to oceans governance, particularly in relation to conservation of high seas biodiversity, climate change and the oceans, implementation of navigational regimes and maritime law enforcement. The central theme of her research can be characterised as an examination of how law of the sea principles can be reconciled with marine environmental law and the legal and institutional mechanisms necessary to achieve that objective.
