Chapter Summary

The Particularly Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA) implements mandates under international law to protect environments in general and particularly unique areas. It appears to be an implementation of United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) 1982 in relation to the measures that can be taken in the Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ). It should be implemented in a manner that maintains the "specialness" of the PSSA. This chapter focuses on the role of islands and rocks in delimitation, and piracy and armed robbery at sea. The two distinct subjects of international law of the sea is that, the islands' impact on maritime boundaries, and piracy off the coast of Somalia, are likely to remain on the agenda of the international community for the foreseeable future.
