Description

An efficient control over vessels is a key element in the fight against new threats which emerge in the field of the law of the sea (pollution by substandard ships, overexploitation of fish stocks, trafficking of persons, drugs or weapons of mass destruction). In this respect, the question may be asked as to whether the traditional rules of the law of the sea, based inter alia on the exclusive jurisdiction of the flag State and the freedoms of the high seas, are still able to efficiently deal with these issues. This volume gives an overview of the developments which have taken place (Port State Control, Proliferation Security Initiative, Protocol to the SUA Convention …) in Europe and Northern America with a view to addressing the new challenges arising in the field of pollution, fisheries, crimes at sea and terrorism. Erik Franckx is Professor at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Université Libre de Bruxelles, the Institute for European Studies (Brussels, Belgium), and holds teaching assignments at Vesalius College (Brussels, Belgium), the University of Kent at Canterbury (Brussels School of International Studies; Brussels, Belgium), and the Université Paris-Sorbonne Abu Dhabi (Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates). He is member of the Permanent Court of Arbitration (The Hague, The Netherlands). Philippe Gautier is Professor at the Université Catholique de Louvain (Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium) and Registrar of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (Hamburg, Germany).
