Drawing on papers presented at Trinity College, Dublin, in 2010, Selected Contemporary Issues in the Law of the Sea provides a cohesive discussion on various challenges involved with the law of the sea.

International experts cover topics such as straight baselines, high seas/EEZ jurisdiction, the definition of, and jurisdiction over, piracy and submissions to the CLCS relating to outer continental shelf claims in disputed areas.

In addition, Selected Contemporary Issues in the Law of the Sea delves into topics seemingly neglected in contemporary literature. The permissible use of artificial constructions as basepoints is discussed, for example, as are human rights issues involved in boarding non-flag ships; and in the context of piracy, issues such as the Japanese and NGO (Greenpeace) attitudes to current interventions (so-called ‘eco-piracy’) by NGO ships to prevent Japanese whaling activities in Antarctic waters.
