Implications of the emerging law of the sea to the U. S. Navy
Naval Postgraduate School, 1974 - Law - 140 pages
Seven major issues in dispute at the United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea and affecting the U.S. Navy are examined from the standpoints of Naval interests as well as the Nation and the international community. The issues are: National security and peaceful use of the oceans, The territorial sea, International straits, Marine resources, Marine scientific research, Marine pollution, The international regime. Solutions to the issues are argued and compared from the perspectives of the international community as a whole, the United States and the U. S. Navy. It is shown that the best solutions for both the United States and its naval force appear to be in the direction of greater international jurisdiction for the world's seas and, thus, the U.S. stands to gain the most from an effective and widely accepted international ocean regime. The roles of the U.S. Navy and other international navies as peacekeepers and marine managers supporting a new international ocean order are also explored. (Author).
