Chapter Summary

A major achievement of the LOS Convention is that it has brought the law of the sea under the jurisdiction of international courts and tribunals. The first category is the consequence of that the provisions of the Convention are insufficient to deal with certain problems that have emerged recently, either because they treat the subject too summarily or because they do not consider it at all. The second category, hinges on the fact that it is becoming increasingly apparent that the law of the sea cannot be considered in isolation. What seems noteworthy is that many specific questions relating to the law of the sea must be seen also in light of other branches of international law: first and foremost international environmental law, but also international human rights law, international trade law, the law of international security including terrorism and migration by sea, and developments in regional integration and cooperation.

Keywords: environmental law; international courts; international law; international trade law; law of the sea; migration by sea; UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOS Convention)
