The Global Law of the Sea

The Global Law of the Sea

Author: Graeme Scott Baber Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/06/2020

Some years ago, while a Senior Lecturer-in-Law at BPP University, one of my Master of Laws students asked if he could write a dissertation in Maritime Law. He wanted to do a survey of the rules of both Admiralty Law and the Law of the Sea. The department contained no specialist in either of these fields, and I taught neither. As he could not be dissuaded from this plan, I had to undertake a rapid, informal, self-directed learning programme in the subjects in order to gain sufficient professional skill to be able to supervise, and, later, assess the dissertation. His project was surprisingly goodand I had my first contact with rules concerning territorial seas, contiguous zones, exclusive economic zones, continental shelves and high seas. My interest in these topics grew and, eventually, flourished in the project of this monograph. The book covers the laws in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982 that concern baselines and boundary delimitation, together with cases which relate to these topics. There is also a major input to the monograph from procedural matters pertaining to the International Court of Justice, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea and arbitration under Annex VII to the Convention, with an example case provided for each of these mechanisms. As States Parties to the Convention may make a Declaration under its Article 287 for the settlement of their disputes by one or more of these methodstogether with special arbitration under Annex VIII to the Convention for four issues specified thereinthis Article, together with the methods and the remainder of Part XV of the Convention, are core material for a systematic review of the Law of the Sea. In instances in which it is possible, comparisons are made between: (i) the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and its predecessors, i.e., the Geneva Conventions from 1958, and (ii) the rules of the International Court of Justice and those of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. In essence, the Convention builds upon its precursory instruments, which tend to be simpler than the former, and the procedural rules for the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea are similar or identical to those of the International Court of Justice, other than a few provisions that are new or materially modified from the terms of the Court, but with the necessary changes from the latter being made. The cases at this level are fewer than in black-letter subjects of the law, but tend to be complex and, for the legal scholar, very interesting. This is especially true of the South China Sea Arbitration, which was a judgment of pioneering brilliance from an Annex VII arbitral tribunal composed of one academic and four experienced judges, to which a substantial literature hasin the short period since this cases resolutionbeen devoted. The very best of luck with your reading!

EU Maritime Transport Law

EU Maritime Transport Law

Waterborne transport is of crucial importance within the European Union. Almost 90% of the EU's external freight trade and 40% of the intra EU-exchanges of goods and passengers are carried by sea. 23 EU Member States are coastal states and 26 are Flag States. EU shipowners manage 30% of the world's vessels and 35% of the global shipping tonnage. Each year, more than 400 million passengers pass through European ports. The Framework of the 'Erika Packages' adds another regulatory level to the existing global legal regime. As a result, almost all aspects of maritime transport and shipping are now regulated by EU Law. Brussels Commentary on EU Maritime Law provides a comprehensive article-by-article analysis of the most relevant of these EU Regulations and EU Directives. The book covers the following issues: The EU and Maritime Transport: A Comprehensive Overview, Regulatory Issues in Shipping, Environmental Policy and Pollution Control, Maritime Safety, Maritime Security and Infrastructure, Consumer Protection and Passenger Rights, Carriage of Goods by Sea and Litigation, Market Access, Competition, State Aid, Maritime Labour and Working Conditions, The Regulation of Inland Waterway Transport. Comprehensive and authoritative, it is required reading for all practitioners in the field.

Maritime Law

Author: Frank L. Maraist Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/05/2020

The third edition of this law school casebook, like the first two, focuses on modern admiralty practice.

This third edition includes new and significant cases decided since the second edition was published, including cases affecting vessel status, maritime contracts and punitive damages. Pedagogically, all relevant materials are included in this one volume. The relevant statutes are placed along with the key cases in the text, so the students need only flip a page or so to get to the relevant statute. For context, a conversion chart of Title 46 is provided in an appendix. The order of the materials in this edition have been rearranged to facilitate its use either in a shorter maritime personal injury/wrongful death course or in a full admiralty law survey course. The first ten chapters focus on admiralty jurisdiction as well as maritime personal injury and wrongful death law. The following chapters cover other aspects of maritime law, including charter parties, cargo law, maritime liens, collision, tugs, towage and pilotage, marine insurance, limitation of liability, sovereign immunity, salvage, choice of law, as well as maritime jurisdiction and procedure.

Blue Legalities

Blue Legalities

Author: Irus Braverman Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 17/01/2020

The ocean and its inhabitants sketch and stretch our understandings of law in unexpected ways. Inspired by the blue turn in the social sciences and humanities, Blue Legalities explores how regulatory frameworks and governmental infrastructures are made, reworked, and contested in the oceans. Its interdisciplinary contributors analyze topics that range from militarization and Maori cosmologies to island building in the South China Sea and underwater robotics. Throughout, Blue Legalities illuminates the vast and unusual challenges associated with regulating the turbulent materialities and lives of the sea. Offering much more than an analysis of legal frameworks, the chapters in this volume show how the more-than-human ocean is central to the construction of terrestrial institutions and modes of governance. By thinking with the more-than-human ocean, Blue Legalities questions what we think we know-and what we don't know-about oceans, our earthly planet, and ourselves. Contributors. Stacy Alaimo, Amy Braun, Irus Braverman, Holly Jean Buck, Jennifer L. Gaynor, Stefan Helmreich, Elizabeth R. Johnson, Stephanie Jones, Zsofia Korosy, Berit Kristoffersen, Jessica Lehman, Astrida Neimanis, Susan Reid, Alison Rieser, Katherine G. Sammler, Astrid Schrader, Kristen L. Shake, Phil Steinberg

Shipbreaking in Developing Countries

Shipbreaking in Developing Countries

Author: Md Saiful (Queensland University of Technology, Australia) Karim Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/12/2019

This book explores the process of shipbreaking in developing countries, with a particular focus on Bangladesh. In the past, shipbreaking (the disposal of obsolete ships) was a very common industrial activity in many developed countries. However, due to stringent domestic environmental and labour laws it is almost impossible for the increasing number of vessels to be disposed of domestically, and now developing nations including Bangladesh, China, India, Turkey and Pakistan regularly participate in this activity. The shipbreaking yards in these countries are not only detrimental to the marine and coastal environment but also represent significant health hazards to local people and workers. Given the global importance of the issue, an effective legal and institutional framework for a sustainable operation of the shipbreaking industry is desperately needed. Sitting at the intersection of three distinct fields - environmental justice, international environmental law and international maritime law - this book offers an innovative take on the issues surrounding the shipbreaking process. Drawing on the case study of Bangladesh due to its prominence in the shipbreaking industry, the author implements an environmental justice framework to examine the issues of sustainability surrounding shipbreaking, and analyses the relationship between social development, economic development and environmental protection. Maritime perspectives of environmental justice will also be highlighted through a discussion of the International Maritime Organization's role in the implementation of the Hong Kong Convention in developing countries. This book will be of great interest to scholars of environmental justice, international maritime law and international environmental law.
