If you have a question about this talk, please contact Benjamin Folit-Weinberg.

According to current international law, low-lying island nations whose entire territories will be submerged as a result of rising sea levels lose not only their territory, but also their sovereignty. By exploring the content of the concept of sovereignty and possible ways to artificially raise the ground levels of island states, the talk attempts to show that the contemporary international legal regime addresses the plight of drowning states in an unsatisfactory manner.
