Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Functional Jurisdiction in the Law of the Sea contains the table of contents, foreword, and list of abbreviations. It is a commonplace observation that the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) establishes a framework for the Law of the Sea that is based upon two different concepts. One is a zonal analysis, which takes the juridical zones into which the seas are divided and stipulates the basic rules applicable to each of them in turn. The other is a topical analysis, taking some of the main activities on the seas, such as fishing, marine research and pollution, and again setting out the basic rules for each.

Keywords: functional jurisdiction; topical analysis; UNCLOS; zonal analysis
