Recent Developments in the Law of the Sea And China
Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2006 - Law - 516 pages
The focus of this book is on current ocean law and policy issues particularly in the region around China. A main emphasis is a comprehensive survey of Chinese positions on potential flashpoints such as delimitation in the East China Sea and South China Sea. Other topical subjects covered by both Chinese and outside experts are integrated coastal zone management, oil and gas development in the region, fishery management and enforcement, global advancements in marine science, commercial navigation challenges and protection of underwater cultural heritage sites. The authors make clear that there is a strong, shared commitment to cooperative solutions over maritime disputes within the framework of the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. The work will be useful to anyone concerned with law of the sea in general and the evolving attitudes of States near China in particular.
