Chapter Summary

Developments in international law frequently follow catastrophic or highly-publicized incidents, usually with the effect of changing or expanding the existing framework to deal with the past incident. This chapter assess how the new maritime terrorism developments-the 2005 SUA Protocols, the PSI Interdiction Principles and the U.S. Ship Boarding Agreements-interact with or affect the international law regarding the boarding and inspection of foreign vessels at sea. Before turning to the specifics of these new developments, it is necessary to review the framework respecting the international law justifications that exist for boarding foreign commercial vessels at sea. The PSI Interdiction Principles were released in September 2003 following several meetings of the then PSI participants that refined the wording and content.
