This book brings together 14 meticulously researched papers on how the international Law of the Sea is evolving to meet new technologies, increased shipping and exploitation of marine resources. It is increasingly under pressure to provide legal certainty and consistency over conflicting uses of the oceans and mitigate threats to the marine environment.

For the international shipping community navigational matters are of paramount importance and the balance between the traditional exercise of innocent passage and new navigational controls in the face of increasing vessel traffic, the extraction and carriage of dangerous substances and the threat of pollution is ever more difficult to maintain.
