Chinese Fishing Practices around the Galapagos Islands

Date & Time October 1, 2020 8:00pm
Latin American Committee

Join the Latin American Committee for our first discussion of the academic year, where we'll discuss Controversial Chinese Fishing Practices around the Galapagos Islands. Despite increasing economic ties between China and Ecuador, fishing disputes around the Galapagos have long been a source of tension between both countries. What does this mean for the future of Sino-Ecuadorian relations? How is Galapagos' biodiversity threatened by excessive commercial fishing? Is international/domestic law applicable in this scenario? What are the proposed solutions? How does this establish a precedent for environmental policy?

Tune into our event on Thursday, October 1st at 8:00 pm EST to discuss this and more!
