Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter concerns the regime and practice of the granting of refuge in a port or other safe haven, i.e., a place of refuge, to a ship that is in need of assistance. A ship may need assistance in various situations, and sometimes that assistance may be provided to the ship while it is at sea. Since its emergence in the 19th century, environment conservation concern has focused on terrestrial ecosystems. One reason for the complexity of the modern-day problem of places of refuge for ships is the diversity of actors that are concerned, each one of which is motivated by diverse considerations. The chapter presents an overview of how other chapters of the book are organised.

Keywords: marine environment; refuge; terrestrial ecosystems
