What happens after a judgment is delivered by a tribunal constituted under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea? In this ground-breaking book, all the decisions issued by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea or Annex VII arbitral tribunals are examined to determine what results transpired following the judgment or order. The authors consider what compliance means and whether it has been achieved in UNCLOS dispute settlement. We suggest what other outcomes have sometimes eventuated from UNCLOS dispute settlement and propose steps that may be taken to enhance judgment compliance.


The UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (‘UNCLOS’) not only establishes a suite of maritime zones and sets out the rights and duties of States therein, but it is also one of the few multilateral treaties that includes a complex dispute settlement regime creating compulsory jurisdiction for disputes relating to its interpretation or application. Given that the UNCLOS dispute settlement regime has now been in operation for close to 30 years, it is timely to consider whether the cases instituted under the regime are resulting in decisions with which the parties comply. This study is the first to examine compliance in relation to all judgments issued pursuant to the UNCLOS compulsory dispute settlement regime to date.

There are various environmental and legal challenges arising from offshore renewable energy activities which were not foreseen at the time of the negotiation of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). This book explores how UNCLOS has evolved to adapt to these new challenges through legal mechanisms and examines what gaps may remain and how they should be filled. The book highlights the process of normative reinforcement in the regulation of offshore renewable energy activities whilst maintaining the fundamental balance of interests between the coastal State and other States.
