Chapter Summary

This is the concluding chapter of the book Navigational Servitudes: Sources, Applications, Paradigms. It highlights that public trust is the ultimate juridical paradigm, tested by its assertion and application of navigation servitudes for the protection and preservation of the common navigational freedom principle. In the 21st century the implementation of the high seas regime res communis public trust remains an ongoing process, but one now being brought forward out of the Grotius/Selden dispute through multiple conventional arrangements. Within that 21st century juridical crucible for the high seas regime res communis public trust the Oceans Public Trust remains the ultimate objective for conventional law of the sea protection and preservation of the non-discriminatory navigation freedom principle and its application consistent with equitable principles.

Keywords: common navigational freedom principle; high seas regime res communis public trust; law of the sea; navigation servitudes; Oceans Public Trust
