The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea is an independent judicial body established by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea to adjudicate disputes arising out of the interpretation and application of the Convention.
The Tribunal is open to States Parties to the Convention and, in certain cases, to entities other than States Parties (such as international organizations and natural or legal persons).
The jurisdiction of the Tribunal comprises all disputes submitted to it in accordance with the Convention. It also extends to all matters specifically provided for in any other agreement which confers jurisdiction on the Tribunal.

South Korea, Japan and the Search for a Peaceful Solution
In The Dokdo/Takeshima Dispute, Paul Huth, Sunwoong Kim, and Terence Roehrig have assembled some of the top scholars from Japan, South Korea, and the United States to provide a fresh and comprehensive look at one of the most long-running island disputes in East Asia. The book examines the dispute from multiple perspectives with chapters that provide a detailed and balanced assessment addressing issues in international law, history, foreign policy, domestic politics, the media, education, and the impact on relations with the United States. The book also provides analyses of why this dispute has persisted for decades and explores possible solutions that are relevant for other maritime disputes in the Asia-Pacific.
Author: J. Ashley Roach
State practice in the law of the sea has continued to evolve since publication of the 3rd edition of Excessive Maritime Claims in 2012. In this 4th edition, J. Ashley Roach has brought the text up to date, particularly as to the provisions relating to the balance of navigational rights and freedoms with the interests of coastal and island States. Of particular interest are the more detailed explanations of the phrase “freedom of navigation”; the expanded material on baselines and on the practice of archipelagic States, the revisions of the material on the continental shelf, on marine data collection, on submarine cables and pipelines, and US Ocean Policy. A new chapter has been added on islands and other maritime features.

This edition is dedicated to Dr. Robert W. Smith, the premier marine geographer.
