The volume surveys and discusses the range of current issues arising in the law of the sea from an Asian-Pacific perspective. There have been major developments in the law of the sea in the region: many current controversies (e.g. over archipelagic sealanes passage, drift-net fishing and environmental management) have their origins, or important exemplars, in the region.

The contributors include international lawyers, political scientists and government officials with expertise in the region. Particular aspects of the book which are of interest are:-

  • its discussion of the perspectives of particular countries in the region (East Asia, Australia, the Pacific Islands);
  • its focus on issues of the marine environment and fisheries, including drift-net fishing;
  • discussion of specific developments which are of general interest (the Torres Strait Treaty and its implementation, maritime-confidence-building measures, dispute resolution);
  • and an overview of issues relating to high seas freedoms, including in particular transit through straits and archipelagoes. There is a concluding essay by the editors summarizing the various trends.
