Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the UN Conference on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS III) and the process of international law-making. The UNCLOS III and the 1998 Rome Conference to adopt the Statute of the International Criminal Court are the leading examples in modern times. The chapter also talks about the law of the sea and the margin of appreciation: and fair treatment of seafarers in the event of a maritime accident. It further talks about the uniform application of the international regime on liability and compensation for oil pollution damage, and peaceful uses of the seas in the light of new challenges and threats. Navigation is an historic State activity taking place in the world's oceans that has now become the main activity, especially in the light of the globalisation process. Finally, the chapter focuses on sea boundary delimitation and internal waters.
