Chapter Summary

This chapter shows, Caribbean nations' uniform state practice, as evidenced by modern sources of international law, supports the notion that an international legal norm has developed which allows states to regulate the passage of ships through their territorial and EEZ waters in order to protect the security and well-being of their people and environment. In the case of Caribbean nations, their state practice has led to the development of a nuclear-free zone in the Caribbean Sea. Since 1992, a year in which the transport by sea of radioactive materials intensified, many Caribbean countries have expressed their rejection to the continued use of the Caribbean Sea for the transport of radioactive materials, as have numerous other nations around the globe. Similar to the Pacific region, the Caribbean Sea contains many of the smallest countries in the world.
