This presentation gives a reassessment of the rules on naval warfare on the background of the fact that most armed conflicts in the post-World War II period have been internal or mixed armed conflicts. In this context the questions concerning the applicability of the traditional rules on naval warfare and the potential area for naval warfare are raised. The paper deals predominantly with the protection of navigation of neutrals.
