Project description:
In this project I will analyze the legal implications of sustainable development pertaining to maritime law, particularly on maritime contracts. I will consider the implications of new impending contractual obligations emerging from the necessity of preventing air pollution from ships. Next I will evaluate various relevant aspects of contract law in a comparative perspective between civil and common law legal systems, such the evolution of the concept of good faith in common law and how environmental norms have impacted the behavior of the parties in contract law. Furthermore, I will also explore some aspect of port law namely the compliance by port States with international regulations on the reduction of carbon emissions from ships.To conclude I will investigate the possible interpretation of sustainability clauses in maritime contracts and the enforcement of these provisions in the case of not compliance with the international sustainability obligations.

Projektet vil udrede en række grundlæggende aftaleretlige spørgsmål om, hvornår der opstår en aftaleretlig forpligtelse, når såkaldte "smart contracts", ved hjælp af blockchain teknologi, anvendes som middel til aftaleindgåelse
