Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author agrees with Judge Tullio Treves that the distinction between beyond and within national jurisdiction is artificial and contrary to the ecosystem approach. The author also agrees that the mandate of the International Seabed Authority (ISA) cannot and should not be expanded to include all activities beyond national jurisdiction. The Fish Stocks Agreement (FSA) with its yearly meetings of States parties and its Review Conference could serve to a certain extent as a model. As Judge Treves so usefully suggests, a UN Declaration of Principles in a General Assembly resolution could serve as the basis for such an agreement, just as declarations of principles set the scene for the negotiation of the Law of the Sea (LOS) Convention and the Outer Space Treaty. Such declarations are carefully negotiated and have a great deal of influence and effectiveness in determining the actions of states and organisations.
