The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) offers a legal framework for the sustainable development of the oceans and their natural resources. However, recently there have been calls to amend the Convention due to some ambiguous provisions which are unable to address a variety of contemporary maritime issues.

This book evaluates the applicability and effectiveness of UNCLOS as a settlement mechanism for addressing ocean disputes. The book’s central focus is on the South China Sea (SCS) dispute, one of the most complex and challenging ocean-related conflicts in the world. The book examines the ways in which an emphasis on sovereignty, threats to maritime security and overlapping maritime claims caused by the newly established maritime regimes authorized by UNCLOS are all contributing factors to the SCS dispute. The book considers the internal coherence of the Law of the Sea Convention regime and its dispute settlement procedures. It looks at participation in the UNCLOS negotiations, maritime legislation, and the dispute settlement practice of relevant States party to the SCS dispute. The author goes on to explore the relationship between UNCLOS and the regimes and institutions in the SCS, particularly in regard to issues of maritime security, marine environment protection, joint development of oil and gas and general political interaction. The author proposes practical mechanisms to resolve the dispute whilst also offering a final judgement on the effectiveness of UNCLOS for settling disputes. UNCLOS and Ocean Dispute Settlement will be of particular interest to academics, students and policy makers of international, shipping and maritime law as well as being of interest to academics and students in the field of international relations.

About the Author:

Dr. Nong Hong is Associate Professor (Research), at the Research Centre for Oceans Law and Policy's, National Institute for South China Sea Studies (NISCSS). Her research takes an interdisciplinary approach based on international relations and international law, with a focus on International Relations and Comparative Politics; ocean governance in East Asia; law of the sea; international security with an emphasis on non-traditional security; international dispute settlement and conflict resolution.

Review:

"With this book, Dr. Hong has made a constructive contribution to the academic literature pertaining to maritime disputes in the SCS. She has brought to light an important area of international law and politics. The author has obviously written after elaborate research and painstaking attention to sources, and should be commended for her thorough analysis of State practice, as well as her innovative five-fold suggestions for a pragmatic solution to the conflicts in the SCS. The text will be useful both to scholars in international relations and international law, politicians and students."

Øystein Jensen Senior Research Fellow, Fridtjof Nansen Institute, Lysaker, Norway
