This chapter assesses the future of the law of the sea in light of the analysis of the past and present development of the law of the sea provided in the preceding chapters. It looks at key themes emerging from this Handbook, with particular attention to the future of maritime limits and zones, law of the sea actors and institutions, substantive regimes under the law of the sea, and regional seas. It considers the future for the UN Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOSC), the ‘Constitution of the Oceans’.
