What is LAW OF THE SEA? What does LAW OF THE SEA mean? LAW OF THE SEA meaning - LAW OF THE SEA definition - LAW OF THE SEA explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Law of the Sea is a body of international law that concerns the principles and rules by which public entities, especially states, interact in maritime matters, including navigational rights, sea mineral rights, and coastal waters jurisdiction. It is the public law counterpart to admiralty law, which concerns private maritime intercourse. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, or "UNCLOS", concluded in 1982 and put into force in 1994, is generally accepted as a codification of customary international law of the sea. Disputes are resolved at the International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea (or "ITLOS"), a court in Hamburg. In 2017, ITLOS celebrated 20 years of existence, during which time it had settled some 25 cases. The Tribunal has jurisdiction over all disputes concerning the interpretation or application of the Convention, subject to the provisions of article 297 and to the declarations made in accordance with article 298 of the Convention. The judge are derived from a wide variety of nations. With many people worldwide now turning their eyes to an ocean in peril, the Law of the Sea convention turned into a global diplomatic effort to create a basis of laws and principles for all nations to follow concerning the sea and everything it held. The result: A 1982 oceanic constitution, called the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. Between New York, USA and Geneva, Switzerland, ambassadors from 165+ countries sat down to trade and barter for their nations' rights. The conference created the standard for a 12-mile territorial sea around a land and allowed it to gain universal acceptance. Within these limits, states are free to enforce any of their own laws or regulations or use any resources. Furthermore, each signatory coastal state is granted an Exclusive Economic Zone (or "EEZ"), in which that state has exclusive rights to fisheries, mineral rights and sea-floor deposits. The Convention allows for "innocent passage" through both territorial waters and the EEZ, meaning merchant ships do not have to avoid such waters, provided they do not do any harm to the country or break any of its laws. Military ships do NOT have the right to pass through another nation's EEZ unless permission is granted. This can cause difficulties for Russia, whose Baltic fleet and Black Sea fleet do not have unobstructed access to the great oceans. By contrast, the USA (which is not a signatory to UNCLOS) has free access to the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans, and to the Gulf of Mexico. Because the EEZ is so extensive, ITLOS may need to determine the ocean boundaries between states, as they did in 2012 between Bangladesh and Burma (Myanmar). As the Arctic Ocean becomes increasingly important for both navigation and resources, the USA may find it necessary to submit to UNCLOS to clarify the Alaska/Canada border. The Law of the Sea should be distinguished from Maritime Law, which deals with topics such as law of carriage of goods by sea, salvage, collisions, marine insurance and so on. In maritime law disputes, normally at least one party is a private litigant, such an individual or a corporation.

Book Launch: “United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea: A Commentary” (Beck/Hart/Nomos, 2017) Two weeks before its international conference “A Bridge over Troubled Waters”, the MPI Luxembourg is delighted to give the floor to Prof. Alexander Proelß (University of Trier) to present his new book titled United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea: A Commentary (Beck/Hart/Nomos, 2017). The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) entered into force in 1994 and has since been ratified by about 160 states, including all the Member States of the EU and the EU itself. The Convention defines the rights and duties of national states with regard to the use of the seas. UNCLOS consolidates customary international law and various Conventions previously adopted by the international community. This Treaty is often referred to as 'the constitution for the seas'. Prof. Proelß’ Commentary focuses particularly on the interaction between UNCLOS and the European legal order, for example in the field of the prevention or the reduction of environmental pollution and the fair distribution of natural resources. Lecturer: Prof. Alexander Proelß (University of Trier) Alexander Proelss is Professor for public international law and European Union law. He is the Director of the Institute of Environmental Law and of the Institute for Legal Policy at Trier University. He is also a member of the board of directors of the Centre for European Studies of that University. International and European environmental law as well as the international law of the sea constitute the focal points of his research. Alexander Proelss is a member of several national and international research consortia. He has advised State agencies and other stakeholder on many occasions and has taught courses on public international law, European law, constitutional law and domestic environmental law on a regular basis both within Germany and abroad. Interviewer: Prof. Alina Miron (University of Angers) Alina Miron is Professor of International Law and co-director of the Master of International and European Law at the University of Angers (France). She has also been Counsel and Advocate for States in a number of cases before the ICJ, ITLOS and arbitral tribunals.

The contribution of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea to good governance of the oceans and seas - A model of international convention: UNCLOS and its claim to universality and generality The conservation and management of the oceans and the seas require an adequate international legal framework. This framework began to be formulated within the III United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea during the seventies of the last century. It manifested itself in a large international agreement, which has been opened for signature on the 10th of December 1982 -- the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea -- of which, nowadays, more than 160 States and the European Union are parts of. In fact, the 10th of December 2012 marks the 30th anniversary of its signature. On that occasion, the IV Colloque ordinaire de l'Association Internationale du Droit de la Mer on "The Contribution of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea to Good Governance of the Oceans and Seas" will be held at the Faculty of Law, University of A Coruña.

Law of the Sea
 
01:31
The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (abbreviated UNCLOS), also known as the Law of the Sea Treaty (abbreviated LOST), was completed in 1982 by the third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea. The United States Senate has not given its consent to the treaty; the U.S. is thus not part of the Convention. The Law of the Sea Treaty was designed to solve to protect ocean resources and set up a framework for the resolution of maritime disputes between nations. Ratification of the treaty by the U.S. is essential in an increasingly globalized world. First, the treaty would help protect the environment by setting up a framework for the allocation of ocean resources to ensure that no country could destroy any vital ocean ecosystems through overfishing or destructive seabed mining practices. Second, the treaty would help U.S. businesses by giving the U.S. sole jurisdiction over almost 300,000 square miles of ocean territory, much of which contains significant oil and mineral deposits. Third, LOST would help ensure the effectiveness of the U.S. military by guaranteeing the U.S. navy and air force full mobility.

UNCLOS - Important to U.S. Industry and National Security? [5-9-2017]

Does Washington's failure to ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty harm U.S. economic and national security interests? Recent events highlight what is at stake: rights to lay claims to oil and gas reserves in the Arctic and mineral interests in the deep seabed, rights to lay and maintain submarine cables for military and economic purposes, and rights of the U.S. Navy and our allies to maintain navigational freedom in waters around the globe. The United States has a key strategic interest in supporting the settled rules of the Law of the Sea Convention, but our failure to ratify the Treaty does undermine our ability to persuade other countries to abide by these norms. Join us for a discussion of the potential economic and security hazards of this failure.

BOOK REVIEW THE INTERNATIONAL LAW OF THE SEA By Donald R Rothwell and Tim Stephens Hart Publishing ISBN: 978-1-84113-257-0 www.hartpub.co.uk A RE-EVALUATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL LAW OF THE SEA: FOCUSSING ON THE 1982 UN CONVENTION An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers In the great tradition of international legal scholarship, the authors, both of them connected to the University of Sydney, present a fresh and lucid examination of the modern international law of the sea which is both extensive and thorough. As pointed out in the Preface, the international law of the sea has been in a state of constant development over the course of many centuries so this work is a welcome re-evaluation. Long before the use of the term 'global business' became widespread toward the end of 20th century, there was always the sea; the natural facilitator for international trade, establishing links between nations for good or ill. The authors refer to Roman law -- which provided that the sea was free and common to all -- and also a pivotal and influential work by the Dutch scholar Grotius, who in his 1608 Mare Liberum, supported the concept of 'freedom of the seas'. The prime purpose of this book, however, is to provide a fresh explanation of what the authors term ' the foundational principles of the law of the sea' together with a critical overview of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and the many and consequent developments emanating therefrom.... and they succeed! The book actually focuses on the UN Convention, placing its achievements in historical and contemporary context and examining the rules and institutions which it has established. Most importantly for the contemporary practitioner, the book addresses in detail a number of contemporary issues which obviously were not anticipated back in 1982: maritime security initiatives, for example, many of which followed the 9/11/ 2001 attacks on New York -- and also the re-emergence of piracy as a persistent maritime threat. And then there is the challenge of climate change and its possible and probable effects, from coastal erosion and disappearing islands to newly navigable waters in our polar regions... and, generally, the effects of ocean warming on the environment as a whole In all, this new, well researched publication from Hart Publishing is a fascinating read, an important addition to the extensive body of literature available on this complex subject. Suggestions for further reading and research in this of law are offered at the end of each chapter -- now there's a time saver -- and you will find the expected and invaluable research tools including lists of cases, statutes, figures and treaties, plus comprehensive index. If maritime law is the focus of your practice, this shorter book, with its thoroughly up to date evaluation of the international law of the sea in the context of the 1982 United Nations Convention, will be an invaluable addition to your library. The law is stated as at 31 March 2010 and is an excellent re-evaluation of international sea law.

8th South China Sea Conference 2016 -  SESSION 7
 
01:40:03
Moderator: Prof. Robert Beckman, Head, Ocean Law and Policy Programme, Centre for International Law, The National University of Singapore There are already a number of mechanisms in place for managing the South China Sea tensions. While these mechanisms to some extent managed to prevent tensions from escalating into conflicts, most are perceived as having overlapping functions. Besides, there are legitimate complaints that gaps still exist and that a number of global and regional institutions have not yet fully or partly utilized. At the same time, international good practices in semi-enclosed seas have not been fully explored for potential application in the South China Sea. This session examines the current state of regional security structures in dealing with South China Sea issues. It tries not only to identify existing challenges and gaps in regional architecture but also to discuss how best to use existing regional and global institutions to manage the SCS situation, as well as new possible ways and means to effectively deescalate tensions and minimize their spill-over effects on other areas. Speakers: • Prof. Helmut Tuerk, Ambassador, Chairman of the Review Committee of the International Seabed Authority, Former Judge and Vice - President of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea “Global Institutions and Their Roles: International Tribunal for the Law of Sea (ITLOS), International Seabed Authority (ISA), Commission on the Limits of Continental Shelves (CLCS)” • Prof. Seokwoo Lee, Professor of International Law, Inha University Law School, and Director of Inha International Ocean Law Centre, Korea South China Sea Arbitration and Beyond Territorial and Maritime Disputes in East Asia: Its Application to Dokdo • Ms. Elina Noor, Director, Foreign Policy and Security Studies, Institute of Strategic and International Studies (ISIS), Malaysia “Managing the South China Sea Spill-Overs: Cyber Security as New Space for Competition or Source for Cooperation” • Dr. Tran Truong Thuy, Senior Research Fellow, Bien Dong Maritime Institute, Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam “Regional Security and Cooperation Structures in Dealing with South China Sea Issues: Conflicts, Overlaps and Possible New Mechanisms”
