Chapter 5: Inclusive and evidence-based decision-making in CCAMLR: a basis for ensuring compliance?

Nils Vanstappen


Chapter 5 deals with a major challenge for CCAMLR: non-compliance. This chapter argues that one way CCAMLR can promote – and has promoted – compliance is by ensuring that its decision-making process is legitimate. The focus is specifically on two principles guaranteeing legitimate decision-making, namely inclusive participation and evidence-based decision-making. The normative content of these principles is discussed, as well as their legal status and substance under international fisheries law. CCAMLR’s design and decision-making process are studied in the context of these principles.
