AbstractThis article is a summary of a keynote address given at the Symposium held at the Netherlands Institute for the Law of the Sea at the University of Utrecht on 8 July 2011, the articles from which are collected in this Special Issue. It considers the threats facing the high seas and open ocean, and it considers the defects of the current state of governance of areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJ), using the current efforts to protect the Sargasso Sea as an example. It then puts forward the case for the restatement of principles of ocean governance as part of a process within the UN to develop a new instrument to govern ABNJ.
