International Law of the Sea

Current Trends and Controversial Issues

Edited by: Angela Del Vecchio

In the last few decades, the law of the sea has been affected, not only by the processes of globalization that have changed the key interests of the international community, but also by natural phenomena like climate change. In addition, technological advances, having opened up new opportunities to exploit marine resources and to produce energy and which make the sea in itself a resource, have contributed to a further development of the law of the sea. This book contributes to the study of the evolution of the law of the sea and will not fail to be of interest to academics in the field. It analyzes those areas of the law of the sea in which the transformations taking place seem to be more significant, such as: migration by sea * the security of navigation and the fight against piracy * safety of navigation * protection of maritime labor * the legal framework governing the polar regions * special issues relating to the harnessing of marine resources.
