Maritime Security and the Law of the Sea

Natalie Klein (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

After a short introduction to law enforcement in the law of the sea, this chapter considers each maritime zone in turn, beginning with those closest to the state's land territory (ports and internal waters) and the territorial sea (straits, the contiguous zone, the continental shelf, Exclusive Economic Zone, and the high seas). For each zone addressed, particular issues for law enforcement in relation to maritime security threats are discussed, notably in relation to transnational crime (such as drug trafficking and people-smuggling), piracy and armed robbery, marine pollution, and IUU fishing. It is shown that there has been greater recognition of enforcement powers to respond to maritime security threats, and this recognition has usually come at the expense of sovereign interests in certain maritime areas and over vessels.
