(p.211) 5 Intelligence Gathering and Information Sharing
Maritime Security and the Law of the Sea

This chapter begins with an overview of the policy of Maritime Domain Awareness as applied in different states. From this basis, legal rules relating to intelligence gathering in different maritime zones are examined in the second part. The third part of the chapter looks at some specific initiatives under international law designed to enhance a state's knowledge about who is operating and what is happening at sea. Seafarers identification and the Long Range Identification and Tracking Regulation of the IMO are considered in this regard. The fourth part considers how information sharing has featured in various law enforcement efforts in response to maritime security threats. These analyses show that while an inclusive interest in improving information collection and sharing has prompted a range of legal initiatives, there is still a greater accommodation of exclusive interests and this emphasis has hampered the full effectiveness of these developments.
