This authoritative Research Handbook offers wide-ranging coverage of both traditional and emerging topics dealing with the regulation of ocean space and highlights the key academic debates around ocean governance. It provides a formidable interface between the 1982 UNCLOS Convention and the international law regulating ocean governance, while influencing its further evolution through suggestions for future research in the field.

The Research Handbook on Ocean Governance Law demonstrates that governance of natural resources is instrumental for international peace and security, and that humankind’s well-being and its very resilience is intrinsically linked to the good governance of the ocean’s natural resources. Contributions from leading experts in the field include an innovative combination of both legal doctrine and case studies, with chapters looking into issues such as human rights, sustainability, maritime trafficking and terrorism.

Providing a comprehensive and integrated approach towards ocean governance law, this important book will be an ideal resource for academics, researchers and students interested in environmental and international law. Legal advisors and policy makers working closely with ocean and maritime affairs will also find this a useful reference.

Critical Acclaim
‘This timely Handbook provides a sweeping survey of the fragmented and fast-changing ocean governance seascape. Detailed guidance is offered for navigating the legal complexities surrounding five topics: maritime jurisdictional zones; marine environmental protection including pollution controls and conservation of living resources; implementation of an integrated approach; governance in support of the Blue Economy; and maritime security.’
– David Vanderzwaag, Canada Research Chair in Ocean Law and Governance

‘The authors and editorial team led by Professor Simone Borg have produced an outstanding Research Handbook on Ocean Governance Law. Based on their experience and expertise, leading colleagues have tackled key issues of ocean governance law. This has resulted in a Research Handbook with enormous added value for students, academics and practitioners.’
– Kurt Deketelaere, KU Leuven, Belgium and University of Helsinki, Finland
