Law of the sea — UNCLOS (UN Convention on the Law of the Sea) — International organizations

This chapter assesses maritime security under the 1982 UN Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOSC). It discusses critical issues in contemporary maritime security, highlighting ongoing boundary disputes, transnational crime, and intelligence gathering. It considers the question of what the future may hold for maritime security. It suggests that maritime security will likely remain of fundamental concern and continue to influence legal developments, but perhaps only to the extent that national interests can be asserted and accepted as shared interests.
