23/05/2014 - Elisa Morgera, BENELEX For ten years negotiators in New York have been debating the need for a new international agreement to ensure benefit-sharing from the use of marine genetic resources in the deep seas. A decision on this matter is expected by the end of 2015, but much remains to be clarified as to whether and how benefit-sharing can be framed in that context. This blog post discusses the state of these negotiations and identifies some of the key legal questions that remain unanswered.
