As of 2021, Brill Research Perspectives in the Law of the Sea is no longer published as a journal by Brill, but will continue as a book series.
Brill Research Perspectives in the Law of the Sea advances scholarship in the international law of the sea with a publication that combines analysis of theoretical and conceptual frameworks, recent thematic trends, contemporary judicial decisions, and recent state practice. The publication focuses not only on global developments but also on regional and -- where appropriate -- sub-regional developments and perspectives. All areas of the law of the sea are treated, including maritime zones, navigational rights and freedoms, resource management, maritime regulation and enforcement, marine environmental management, oceans governance, and dispute resolution. Particular attention is given to those analyses and developments that are at the forefront of the law of the sea, some of which may be at the intersection with other areas of international law.
Brill Research Perspectives in the Law of the Sea's primary readership includes academics, researchers, practitioners, policy makers, educators, and graduate and undergraduate students.
