Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides insights into the contents of the book, in which various aspects of ocean governance and the law of the sea structures of today are re-examined in light of contemporary and emerging challenges and responses, largely prompted by the increasing globalisation of the seas and oceans. The chapter discusses the concept of the anthropocene in natural science; linkages to international law perspectives; and provides an outlook on the world ocean in globalization. International experts on marine sciences, ocean affairs and the law of the sea examine the emerging challenges for the World Ocean, inquiring into developments prompted by globalisation in central issue-areas of the law of the sea in various chapters. The final part of this book deals with some key issues for the seas surrounding Europe and their regulatory responses to global challenges.

Keywords:anthropocene epoch; Europe; globalisation; law of the sea; marine environment; ocean governance; world ocean
