On 9 June 2022, the Director, Gaute Sivertsen, delivered a guest lecture to students of the World Maritime University (WMU). He presented in two parts: first, on the legal framework of the international liability and compensation regime, the role of the IOPC Funds and the current challenges which face the organisation and its operation; and secondly, on other international conventions and national systems in place for marine pollution. The audience comprised around 40 students from 22 different States attending the 2022 Maritime Safety and Environmental Administration course or studying Maritime Law and Policy.  The presentations were followed by a discussion session.

The WMU, which is in Malmö, Sweden, was established for postgraduate maritime and ocean education by the International Maritime Organization. The IOPC Funds regularly gives lectures to students of maritime law from WMU and various other universities as part of its efforts to enhance awareness and understanding of the international liability and compensation regime.  For further information, please contact
