Subject Highlights



Freedom of navigation on the high seas and the exclusive jurisdiction of the flag state are well-accepted norms of customary international law. This chapter will evaluate the legal framework under the law of the sea for the exercise of jurisdiction and control over the activities of non-state entities on the high seas, with a focus on the protection of the environment for marine scientific research activities, the laying of cables and pipelines, construction of artificial islands and other installations, and activities of vessels in relation to non-state entities. It will also examine the current status of these activities in relation to the negotiation of an international legally binding instrument for the conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction (bbnj).
