Maritime Security and the Law of the Sea

The first part of this chapter brings together the range of laws applicable to different maritime security threats. In doing so, it is possible to highlight the varying sources of international law on which law enforcement officials, naval officers, other government officials, shipping operators, and other members of the maritime industry will draw in responding to or seeking to prevent these maritime security threats. This part of the chapter concludes by highlighting what future maritime security threats may yet challenge existing legal structures. The chapter also recalls how military interests that largely pertain to national security remain a fundamental dimension to efforts to improve maritime security. Finally, it examines how maritime security has influenced the law of the sea as a general matter. It argues that further incremental change in the law of the sea is warranted and is consistent with a common interest in enhancing maritime security.
