In: The Law of the Sea Convention

Delivered as the Fifth Shabtai Rosenne Memorial Lecture at the United Nations, this paper assesses the wide-ranging importance of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (unclos). The Convention resulted from the third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea (unclos iii) which took place from 1972 to 1982.

The Convention provides a virtual constitution for over two-thirds of planet Earth. It resolved disagreements about oceans law going back at least four centuries. It deals with literally hundreds of substantive and procedural issues in its 302 Articles and nine annexes. On dispute settlement it created an important new international court, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea—along with two new arbitral procedures and a new conciliation procedure—and it created two important new functional international institutions, the International Seabed Authority and the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf.

unclos broadly reflects community common interests rather than special interests, and today it is serving as a framework agreement for newer issues and remaining oceans governance challenges, and is largely in force with 167 state parties plus the European Union.

Contemporary Issues and Innovations
Arbitration is a staple of international dispute resolution. Though the international community now has a plethora of courts and tribunals at its disposal, for numerous reasons international arbitration remains a central mechanism—perhaps even the central mechanism in third-party resolution of international commercial disputes. International Arbitration: Contemporary Issues and Innovations brings together some of the world’s most distinguished experts to examine important contemporary issues and trends in international arbitration. The volume offers a broad range of analysis beginning with current key procedural issues. Both Private and Public International Law are examined, including such topics as investor-state relations, arbitration in the law of the sea and human rights and investment arbitration.
