The Law of the Sea

Tullio Treves

Oxford University Press

The 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOSC) is at the centre of a web of international obligations and institutions whose contracting parties do not necessarily coincide. In the field of dispute settlement, the connection between the LOSC and other instruments and obligations is particularly evident. The coexistence of different courts and tribunals is at the heart of the very mechanism for compulsory settlement set out in Section 2 of Part XV. The choice of procedure clause in Article 287 involves the International Court of Justice, an adjudicating body extraneous to the Convention, together with bodies set up under the LOSC, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea and arbitral tribunals. There are seven agreements utilising the dispute settlement mechanism of the LOSC, covering issues ranging from fisheries management and conservation, to marine pollution control, conservation of living marine resources, and conservation of underwater cultural heritage.
