Markus Aurelius Beckstrøm Laurantzon (Norway)

Masters, China University of Political Science and Law

Currently enrolled into an LLM program at China University of Political of Science and Law, where his primary field of study is law of the sea. He started studying Master of Law (Rettsvitenskap) at the University of Oslo 2013 and will graduate autumn 2019. His research I mainly focuses on Arctic governance and the legal framework governing the Arctic. This includes studies on the present framework of legally binding treaties, soft law instruments and institutions and how the Arctic should be regulated in the future, especially considering the vulnerability of the Arctic eco system. The dilemma of weighing the economic opportunities against protection of the environment presupposes further research. He believes that by attending Arctic Frontiers he will get a better understanding of how the Arctic actually is governed, what interests are playing out, who the stake-holders are and what the hopes and challenges of the future are. As well as valuable insight into the commercial opportunities, scientific research about how the Arctic environment is changing, environmental protection, biodiversity and indigenous people’s rights and interests. In other words, for a lawyer with interest in the Arctic and Arctic affairs it is important to learn about and understand other relevant topics than just law.
