Sponsoring States’ Environmental Legislation for Deep Seabed Mining and China’s Practice
Author: Xiangxin Xu
The contractors are those private or state-owned companies that carry out exploration and exploitation activities in the Area, which, due to the lack of subjectivity under international law, are not obliged by the UNCLOS. In this book, Xiangxin Xu highlights and analyzes the sponsoring State’s primary responsibility, i.e., ensuring its sponsored contractors’ compliance with environmental obligations under the UNCLOS and related legal instruments by enacting national legislation. She examines how and to what extent the sponsoring State validates and implements the international system at the domestic level and makes up for the shortcomings of the international system in managing contractors. The author further takes China’s legislation as an example and provides how it can be improved.
To what extent can underwater archaeology and underwater cultural heritage support a State’s maritime claim? Many States have plausibly extended their maritime legislative and executive jurisdiction to the outer limit of the contiguous zone to better protect underwater cultural heritage. However, some States—such as Canada in the Arctic, China in the South China Sea, or Russia in Crimea—are going further, claiming sovereignty over disputed maritime areas or even the high seas. Maritime Claims and Underwater Archaeology, aimed at internationalists and archaeologists, critically assesses these recent practices, reviewing this search for buried sovereignty from a legal, historical, and ethical perspective.
In this book James Nafziger covers emerging topics of cultural heritage law, particularly at the international level, by focusing primarily on the numerous work products of the International Law Association's Committee on Cultural Heritage Law. Cultural heritage law has become a landmark in the field of international law. Its construction is a good example of transnationalism at work, combining legislation, judicial decisions, and other national initiatives, diplomacy, intergovernmental agreements, especially within the framework of UNESCO, and non-governmental activities and instruments. This volume focuses on the seminal contributions to this process of the Committee on Cultural Heritage Law of the International Law Association, while situating these projects against the broader background of the development of the modern international regime for protecting cultural heritage.

The Examples of Scrubber Washwater, Sewage and Ballast Water
Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is a widely used designation for a broad range of fishing practices with a common theme: whether illegal or not, they cause damage to marine fish stocks and the human communities that depend on them. Yet, when subjected to thorough analysis, this pragmatic governance tool is revealed in a light that calls for caution against uncritical application. Unwrapping its uneasy relationship with international law, this study is ultimately a qualified defence of the IUU fishing paradigm, but also a practical proposal for its reform. This original book makes a genuine contribution to the international fisheries law and policy literature.
