Chapter Summary

This chapter examines treaty modifications to the existing legal framework as implementations of the duty to cooperate, a duty which has again found recent expression in the IMO amendments to the SOLAS and SAR Conventions imposing an obligation of coordination and cooperation among States Parties. The chapter discusses the two major treaty modifications to the general regime in the field of migrant smuggling and rescue at sea. It presents an analysis of the terms of the Migrant Smuggling Protocol as the most recent-and indeed first-expression of the duty of cooperation in this field. The chapter discusses the most advanced areas of international cooperation, notably in combating illicit drug trafficking.

Keywords: illicit drug trafficking; IMO amendments; Migrant Smuggling Protocol; rescue services; SAR Convention; SOLAS Convention
