Methodology: The information collected will be analysed from the Third World of International Law (TWAIL) approach to identify patterns in the discourse of developed and developing states and highlight the difficulties in implementing the transfer of marine technology rules. To support the discourse assessment, the investigation will utilise recognised doctrine.
Results: In the process of conducting the research, it was possible to conclude that (i) there is common sense that the transfer of marine technology is indispensable to implement rules on the protection and preservation of the marine environment; (ii) there are strong commonalities in the states’ discourses, stressing polarisation both in UNCLOS and BBNJ; (ii) BBNJ’s final text has the potential to advance the implementation of marine technology transfer rules.
Contributions: This study highlights the advances in the legal framework on technology transfer with the finalisation of BBNJ. In addition to highlighting the persistence of inequity among states, the research also identifies whether the needs of developing states, as expressed in their written submissions and oral arguments, were reflected in the final text.
