Chapter Summary

This section of the book Functional Jurisdiction in the Law of the Sea contains a list of reference books and material. The principle of territoriality is derived directly from the territorial element of the State and denotes the sum of its legal competences, its 'plenary' jurisdiction, summa potestas. The connection between the State and its nationals is one of the oldest legal links. The book examines whether the basic premises and essential compromises of the Convention still hold true or whether the Convention, as a living instrument, has evolved into accommodating new needs and challenges to its regulatory scheme.

Keywords: functional jurisdiction; Law of the Sea; summa potestas
