Regions, Institutions, and Law of the Sea: Studies in Ocean Governance offers fresh perspectives both on issues specific to major ocean regions, and on the nature and functions of institutions that implement the legal order of the oceans.

Of special interest is a set of chapters by distinguished scholars and jurists providing nuanced analysis of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea as a key actor in the institutional and regime structure. Other expert authors contribute timely analysis of specific ocean uses in the context of implementation of soft" and "hard" law.

Piracy, global warming and ecosystem challenges, geo-engineering, control of pollution in shipping operations, Seabed Authority policy, and performance of the UN Regional Seas Programme are among key issues presented in both their regional and legal dimensions. Also considered in depth are law, ocean policy, and the operation of international organizations in Northeast Asia, Latin America, the Indian Ocean region, the African coastal areas, and the Arctic.

The accessibility of subject matter and the readability of the text's 26 chapters enhance the value of this book as an important addition to the literature. Regions, Institutions, and Law of the Sea is the latest publication of the Law of the Sea Institute at UC Berkeley, a major voice in the global debates of contemporary ocean law and policy. Inha University-Incheon was a major co-sponsor of the project."
