In April 2016, millions of fish and sea life were found dead on the coastal waters of Vietnam, representing the worst environmental disaster in Vietnam’s history.

On the first anniversary of this environmental disaster, we organized this conference as an academic evaluation and a call to action to raise international awareness for the following issues:

  1. Explore the legal implications of this environmental disaster:

    1. To explore remedies via the international criminal court and civil litigation options

    2. To evaluate current legislations on imported products to Australia, EU and North America

  2. Propose clean up solutions and research projects on environmental impacts
