Biography

Ronan Long read for his PhD in Trinity College Dublin. He holds a Personal Professorship in Law and the Jean Monnet Chair of European  Law at the School of Law at NUI Galway, where he lectures EU Law, International Law, Planning and Environmental Law, Law of the Sea, and European Fisheries Law. He has also lectured at the Rhodes Academy Oceans Law and Policy and is a supervisor of advanced academic research under the United Nations - The Nippon Foundation of Japan Fellowship Programme. In this capacity, he has worked with mid-career legal professionals from Bangladesh, Myanmar, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, Guatemala and Costa Rica.

He was the first recipient of the Manahan Fellowship and he has authored and co-edited seven books, and contributes to the leading peer-review journals as well as international workshops/conferences on the law of the sea, ocean management, and the law and policy of the marine environment. His work has received critical acclaim in the academic literature and has been cited by the European Commission, the United Nations Secretary-General in his annual report to the General Assembly on oceans and the law of the sea, and in legal proceedings in the superior courts in Ireland and the European Court of Justice. He is a member of the editorial boards of the International Journal of Marine and Coastal Law and Ocean Development and International Law.

Prior to his academic career, he was a permanent staff member at the European Commission (1993-2000) and undertook over 40 missions on behalf of the European Institutions to the Member States of the European Union, the United States of America, Canada, Central America as well as to African countries. His responsibilities included representing the European Commission at European Council working groups and at several international fora as well as drafting EC regulations governing new satellite technologies for vessel monitoring systems. He contributed to the negotiation and monitoring of the bilateral fishery/trade agreements with Morocco and Mauritania.

Dr. Long is Research Director at the Marine Law and Ocean Policy Centre, which is a cross-faculty initiative between participants from the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, the Law School and Trinity College Dublin. He has participated on the European Union delegation at a number of international fora dealing with the law of the sea including the United Nations and is Ireland’s representative at UNESCO /IOC Advisory Body of Experts of the Law of the Sea. He acts as an adviser/consultant on oceans law and policy issues and provides commissioned work to a number of government departments, state agencies, foreign governments, the European Commission, as well as to public and private bodies including the OSPAR Commission, the Office of Legal Affairs at the United Nations, the International Hydrographic Organisation, the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas, the North-Sea Regional Advisory Council, the Government of Scotland, and the Forum Fisheries Agency in the Pacific.  As the Managing Director of an off-campus SME (www.marinelaw.ie) he is participating on an extra-mural basis in the ODEMM Project in conjunction with 11 European partners. His current research interests are focused on energy law, ecosystem-based management, as well as human rights law as it applies to activities that take place at sea.

As a keen yachtsman, he has represented Ireland at the top competitive level in offshore racing, including spending a memorable year on board NCB Ireland in the work-up programme for the Round the World Race in 1989, and was a regular crew member on Moonduster in the 1980s.

      Name Description of Collaboration
    Internal Collaborators
    Dr. Ronán Long has collaborated with Dr. Anthony Grehan, Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, on several successful European and national research projects concerning different aspects of marine environmental regulation and management. He is a former member of the Irish Coral Task Force and worked on the designation of Europe’s first special areas of conservation in the Exclusive Economic Zone. He is also on the management board of SEMRU in the School of Economics, and has an affiliation with Professor Colin Brown at the Ryan Institute.  His overall contribution to the implementation of the PRTLI Cycle III marine research programme in the Ryan Institute (2002-2006) was rated as “an outstanding success story” by an external peer-review panel appointed by the Higher Education Authority in 2006.

      Name Organisation / Institute Country Description of Collaboration
    External Collaborators University of Virginia School of Law U.S.A.
    Over the past decade, Dr. Ronán Long has built-up a close working relationship with some of the world's leading centres of research excellence in his specialist field of law, including: the Center for Oceans Law and Policy at the University of Virginia; the Max Planck Institute of Comparative Public Law and International Law at Heidelberg University; the Netherlands Institute for the Law of the Sea at Utrect University,  as well as with the Marine and Environmental Law Institute at Dalhousie University.  He has also forged strong collaborations with the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security at the University of Wollongong, the Centre for International Law at Singapore University, and the Korea Maritime Institute.   In this capacity he has co-organised and co-hosted a number of international conferences and workshops focused on contemporary issues in oceans law and policy, with contributions from eminent jurists and scholars including, amongst others: the President of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea; the Secretary-General of the International Seabed Authority; the Assistant Director-General of UNESCO; and the General Counsel at the World Bank.  These have been attended by the leading practitioners and professionals from 60 countries and from many international organisations.  At interdisciplinary level, he has collaborated with some of Europe’s leading marine scientific research institutes in the European framework research projects HERMES and PROTECT. In conjunction with 11 institutional partners from both within and outside the EU, he is currently working in the ODEMM Project on an extra-mural basis which is examining the management options for improving ecosystem based management of the European marine environment.  The methodology and results of this project are being applied  by several EU Member States (including Finland and Ireland) to the task of implementing the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. Several of his recent publications are aimed at explaining how the EU is adopting a new approach to the regulation of activities undertaken in the marine environment,  the challenges and opportunities posed by the legal aspects of ecosystem-based management in Europe, the harmonisation of the regulatory and administrative procedures that apply to ship-based marine scientific research in the European Union, as well as on contentious issues concerning offshore wind energy development, marine spatial planning, and offshore oil and gas law.   In Ireland, Dr. Long has organised specialist workshops and undertaken expert reports for the Petroleum Affairs Division at the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, and the Marine Institute.  He has collaborated with the Naval Service, the Legal Division at the Department of Foreign Affairs and with the Office of the Attorney-General on a number of law of the sea matters.  In 2012, he was a member of an international advisory panel that co-convened an international conference at Dalhousie University examining international regulatory standards that apply to the offshore oil and gas industry in light of the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the United States .
