The “Associazione di Consulenza in Diritto del Mare” (ASCOMARE) is an international think-tank established in 2018 to provide pro bono legal consultancy and technical assistance to Government and private institutions, as well as NGOs and the public.
The main goal of ASCOMARE is to promote knowledge-sharing, and the uniform interpretation and application of the corpus of rules of public international law governing maritime spaces and activities, including its framework convention – i.e. the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, 1982.
The work of ASCOMARE is inspired by environmental principles and human rights considerations.
The team of ASCOMARE consists of international experts and practitioners from different countries and backgrounds, including lawyers and scientists, who have served in important organisations and research institutions worldwide, such as EU, UN/OLA, UNDP, UNEP, UNICEF, ILO and Max Planck.
