Chapter Summary

This section of the book Decisions of the World Court Relevant to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea contains a reference guide to the internal waters, territorial sea and baselines. It also contains a reference to mouth of rivers, bays, ports and roadsteads, criminal jurisdiction, and straits used for international navigation. The law of the sea related cases have continued to feature prominently in the voluminous annals of the World Court ever since the 1923 S.S. Wimbledon and the 1948-1949 Corfu Channel (UK/Albania) Judgments, which inaugurated the contentious jurisprudence of the Permanent Court of International Justice (PCIJ) and its successor, the International Court Of Justice (ICJ) by cases that arose out of incidents involving vessels and that have proven to have far-reaching implications for navigational rights and freedoms.

Keywords: criminal jurisdiction; International Court of Justice (ICJ); Law of the Sea; UN Convention
