Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Navigating Straits: Challenges for International Law presents the table of content, a list of figures and tables, foreword and acknowledgments, and commemoration of jon m. van dyke (1943-2011). The book provides a historical and legal contextual setting for the detailed examination of specific straits. It examines challenges of protection of the marine environment through the experience of three straits subject to different regimes of passage: transit passage in the Torres Strait: internal waters passage, according to Canada, in the Northwest Passage: and non-suspendable passage in the Messina Strait. The book discusses straits that are excluded from Part III of UNCLOS on straits and subject to 'special regimes'. It also examines challenges faced by states in providing for security of passage in straits used in international navigation, especially against the threat of piracy.

Keywords: Canada; International Law; international navigation; marine environment; UNCLOS
