Chapter Summary

This chapter presents opening remarks of the conference "Globalization and the Law of the Sea". There are many issues to be solved within today's United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) system. This conference will probe deeply into issues regarding the increased use of commercial vessels, pirates' actions and terrorist activities in the oceans. We shall seek ways to justify the effect of the islands under the Law of the Sea, as well as look at safety issues and issues regarding marine scientific research, coastal States' sovereignty, and global warming.
