At the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea, the land-locked countries of the world, together with their geographically disadvantaged counterparts, made a determined effort to obtain special recognition in the Law of the Sea convention. As members of the so-called LLGDS group, they challenged the position of coastal states in several areas and introduced proposals which are yet to be fully assessed in the literature on the Law of the Sea.;This book, which is published at a time when many intriguing questions on the Law of the Sea remain subject to intense controversy, charts the LLGDS effort at the UNCLOS III and critically examines the extent to which the 1982 Convention and the customary law reflect the perspective of the LLGDS Group. In addition to this, detailed consideration of many key issues in the law and politics of the sea makes this work of special interest to lawyers, diplomats and students of international relations from both the north and the south.
