Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Navigational Servitudes: Sources, Applications, Paradigms contains the table of contents, acknowledgments and a preface. The book represents more than 30 years of thought and experience gained in a law practice dealing with international and municipal navigable waters issues. It also attempts to pull together the parallel concepts of municipal and international law navigational rights to demonstrate a common underlying principle, that of navigational freedom as a public right held in both those municipal and international public trusts. The trustee municipal governments and the trustee collective community of governments are obligated to protect and preserve the beneficial public use of navigable waters within the respective juridical regimes of international and municipal law according to equitable principles.

Keywords: international law; international public trusts; municipal law; navigational rights; public right; trustee collective community; trustee municipal governments
