This series serves as a platform to promote East Asian maritime studies. The region’s dynamic economic development and complex history has sparked a lively debate amongst academics and policymakers struggling to maintain lasting peace and security in Pacific waters. While narrowing in on the impacts of international law in East Asian seas, the series also promotes a multi-disciplinary lens of the issue across several social sciences including international relations, economics, politics, strategic studies and law of the sea. The series aims to publish innovative works from leading scholars in the field.

Studies in Polar Law publishes monographs and collected works devoted to the legal regimes applicable to the Arctic and the Antarctic. It explores the problems faced by these regions and the solutions proposed on issues such as the environment, sovereignty, dispute resolution, climate change, the rights of indigenous peoples, other human rights, good governance, wildlife, natural resources governance, law of the sea, land and resource claims in the Polar regions, self-determination and self-government, economic development, Arctic security, and the Arctic Council, the Antarctic treaty system and other relevant intergovernmental co-operation.
These commentaries are based almost entirely on the formal and informal documentation of the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS III, 1973-1982), coupled, where necessary, with the personal knowledge of editors, contributors, or reviewers, many of whom were principal negotiators or UN personnel who participated in the Conference.

Throughout its nearly 5000 pages, the Commentary presents the text of each article and thereafter cites its documentary sources. The line-by-line development for each article is discussed chronologically for each session of the Conference. Over 100 international law scholars or Conference diplomats, reflecting a wide diversity of views, contributed to drafting or reviewing the Commentaries.

The reputation of the Virginia Commentary is now firmly established as the most authoritative reference work in the field of international law about the 1982 Convention. The series is regularly cited in judicial proceedings and in scholarly publications around the world.

The authoritative credibility of the Commentary derives from the unique expertise and the hands-on experience of the principal author-editors of each volume and provides an unrivaled resource for international law practitioners, maritime law specialists, educators, government and military authorities and others interested in the UN Law of the Sea Convention.

Le présent volume contient en français et en anglais les décisions rendues par le Tribunal au cours des années 2020 et 2021 : quatre ordonnances procédurales et un arrêt (exceptions préliminaires) rendus dans le Différend relatif à la délimitation de la frontière maritime entre Maurice et les Maldives dans l’océan Indien et quatre ordonnances procédurales rendues dans l’Affaire du Navire « San Padre Pio » (No. 2).
The scope of marine scientific research has long been debated due to a lack of definition of the term in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). The introduction of new forms and methods of ocean data collection adds another layer of legal uncertainty in this field. Marine Scientific Research and the Regulation of Modern Ocean Data Collection Activities Under UNCLOS thus strives to identify the possible limits of the existing legal framework, mainly the UNCLOS marine scientific research regime, and the ways in which the identified gaps can be bridged. In the analysis, Chuxiao Yu carries out two case studies: one on access to marine genetic resources and the other on operational oceanographic activities.
