|17h00||Room 105 - A Conversation with emeritus professor Donat Pharand
For over fifty years, Professor Pharand was Canadaâ€™s and indeed the worldâ€™s leading scholar on the law of the sea of the Arctic. Something of a visionary, Professor Pharand was already considering in 1955 the possible repercussions of increased navigation in the Arctic Ocean and in the early 1990s, was a strong and influential advocate for the creation of an Arctic Region Council. This moderated discussion led by Don McRae will be a rare occasion to chat informally with Professor Pharand on his life and career and the future of the Arctic region. The event will be crowned by the official launch of a collective volume honouring Professor Pharandâ€™s immense contribution to legal scholarship on the Arctic.
