About This Book

The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, or UNCLOS, has been called a constitution for the oceans. It is keeps order in the world's oceans and regulates nations' use of its natural resources. Tommy Koh served as president of the third convention, a multi-year meeting that resulted in important regulations still in use today. In this volume, Koh brings a unique, insider's perspective on the UNCLOS negotiation process, and the concepts, tensions, and intentions that underlie today's Law of the Sea. Koh fully explains the many new concepts of international law that arose from UNCLOS III, such as the Exclusive Economic Zone, Archipelagic State, Straits Used for International Navigation, Transit Passage, Archipelagic Sealane Passage, the Common Heritage of Mankind. He also discusses current threats to maritime security and explains the intricacies of the disputes in the South China Sea.
