This new edition has been fully revised to include up-to-date coverage of essential issues of the international law of the sea.

Covering a number of new and important issues, such as the headline debate of migrant movement across the seas, and the definition of islands in light of the South China Sea arbitration, it also includes chapters on conservation of marine living resources and biological diversity, protection of the marine environment, and international peace and security at sea, as well as building further on such topics as the impact of climate change on the oceans.

A precise and readable book, with many figures and tables, The International Law of the Sea continues to be the best choice for students wanting to understand the law of the sea.

  • This book includes many figures and tables to enhance comprehension of relevant rules, and to help instructors explain them.
  • Includes comparatively detailed footnotes and further readings, so students can further study relevant issues by reading the suggested documents, and the instructor can also suggest further readings for the preparation for exams.
  • New full-revised edition with new sections on contemporary issues and new case studies on big discussions, such as maritime delimitation, marine environmental protection, and migrant movement across the seas.
