Abstract

This article considers the problem of contemporary piracy in the 1990s and the use of foreign naval forces against pirates on the high seas and in coastal waters. An analysis of legal considerations suggest that the LOS Convention on the Law of the Sea makes such intervention less likely; this study also highlights potential factors militating for and against such interference. The possibilities of modifying or amending the LOS Convention are discussed, as well as the employment of declarations or statements, or the use of other international strategies to allow foreign naval activity. The article emphasises the key role of coastal and flag states in any such scenario.
