  • Bringing the human element to the forefront: the ILO’s Maritime Labour
           Convention, 2006 ready to sail
    • Authors: George P. Politakis
      Pages: 37 - 51
      Abstract: Abstract The International Labour Organization’s Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 MLC, 2006) will finally come into effect in August 2013, some seven and a half years after its adoption. The MLC, 2006, which updates and replaces almost 40 existing ILO maritime Conventions, introduces several innovatory features, including certification of labour conditions for ships of over 500 gross tons engaged in international voyages as part of a detailed flag State and port State inspection regime. The MLC, 2006 covers all aspects of maritime employment and seeks to ensure decent working and living conditions for seafarers as well as conditions of fair competition for shipowners. At the time of its entry into force, the MLC, 2006 covers already two-thirds of the world’s gross tonnage of ships.

  • Oceans and the Law of the Sea at the UN General Assembly
    • Authors: Kari Hakapää
      Pages: 53 - 80
      Abstract: Abstract The article studies the annual resolutions adopted on the law of the sea by the UN General Assembly since the adoption of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea in 1982. It outlines the general framework of the resolutions and discusses their contents and the recommendations made for the conduct of marine activities and the implementation and application of the Convention regime. In the preparation of the resolutions, differing views and positions often result in texts vague or complex in formulation. Such difficulties have related, for instance, to the transport of radioactive materials through coastal zones, adequate protection of underwater cultural heritage or the ways and means to conserve marine biodiversity. The resolutions have expanded in size and could be streamlined to highlight new efforts and innovation to address the various uses of the seas. The General Assembly item on ‘Oceans and the law of the sea’ offers the UN Membership a useful opportunity to consider sea related issues and to promote the protection and good management of the oceans.

  • Agreement on Cooperation on Aeronautical and Maritime Search and Rescue in
           the Arctic: an assessment
    • Authors: Yoshinobu Takei
      Pages: 81 - 109
      Abstract: Abstract Despite certain actions suggesting potential confrontations, it has been claimed that a significant level of cooperation is taking place in the Arctic. At the core of pan-Arctic cooperation is the Arctic Council. In May 2011, the member states of the Arctic Council adopted the first legally binding instrument negotiated under its auspices, entitled “Agreement on Cooperation on Aeronautical and Maritime Search and Rescue in the Arctic”. This article seeks to examine the significance of the conclusion of this Agreement from the perspective of the law of the sea through the analysis of its provisions as well as broader implications. It first briefly describes the background leading to the adoption of the Agreement. It then thoroughly analyses the content of the Agreement. On this basis, it explores the implications of the Agreement for the future of Arctic governance, in particular from the perspective of the prospective role of the Arctic Council.

  • The incongruity between the ecosystem approach to high seas marine
           protected areas and the existing high seas conservation regime
    • Authors: Jung-Eun Kim

      Abstract: Abstract Many of the conferences and meetings which were held about high seas conservation in the 2000s called for the establishment of high seas marine protected areas (HSMPAs) based on an ecosystem approach, they also called for the conservation of deep sea features. However, jurisdictional limitations to components on the high seas can obstruct both the effective conservation of high seas ecosystems and the effective implementation of the ecosystem approach in HSMPAs. This article examines the restriction of jurisdictional nature with regard to implementing HSMPAs based on the ecosystem approach. The states that took part in the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) debated the restriction of the jurisdictional limitations to high seas conservation under the convention. After reviewing the calls for, and defining HSMPAs, this study examines the implications of internal discussion within the CBD system on the effectiveness of HSMPAs. This study has also examined whether such implications can also apply to other relevant conventions, including regional fisheries management agreements which have recently employed HSMPAs.

  • The bunkers convention and limitation of liability
    • Authors: Ling Zhu
      Pages: 181 - 190
      Abstract: Abstract Limitation of liability is a traditional rule applicable to all areas of shipowners’ liability. This rule is also acknowledged in the Bunkers Convention, which came into force in 2008. However, the extent of limitation under the Bunkers Convention is vague or uncertain, as it leaves the liability to be limited “under any applicable national or international regime”. This article therefore focuses on a discussion of the limitation of liability rule under the Bunkers Convention. It is a matter of concern as to whether the limitation of liability rule in conjunction with the whole Bunkers Convention will protect and balance the interests of all parties involved; and whether it will, in the long run, contribute to the further development of international shipping.

  • Contemporary views on the lawfulness of naval blockades
    • Authors: Martin David Fink
      Pages: 191 - 215
      Abstract: Abstract The traditional law of blockade has several technical requirements that if not met renders a blockade unlawful. These traditional requirements balance the interests of the belligerent and neutrals. A more contemporary view on the law of blockade, however, emphasizes that blockades are also subject to the restrictions and general obligations imposed by treaties and general principles of humanitarian law. Crucially, whether or not the consequences of a breach of humanitarian principles or humanitarian law render a naval blockade unlawful or not is however not at all clear. The recent use of naval blockades during the Israeli military operations has given rise again to the discussion as to what renders a blockade unlawful. The maturation of the law of blockade has seen an increasing willingness to embrace aspects of humanitarian law. However, the diversity of views from the international community as endorsed by the published reports on the flotilla incident demonstrates that there remains a lack of consensus and an active discussion on the state of the law of blockade.

  • Piracy at sea and the limits of international law
    • Authors: Rytis Satkauskas
      Pages: 217 - 235
      Abstract: Abstract The world community is focused on piracy. In today’s interdependent world, this crime has once again unleashed itself on the maritime industry, putting people lives and economies at risk. The waters around Somalia and Nigeria are of extreme risk, and the Asian waters still remain an area of concern. The United Nations Security Council even declared piracy a threat to international peace and security. States, in the repression of piracy, do not operate in a legal vacuum. International law, as well as the national legislation of states, regulates the use of force at sea, defining the limits and conditions exercising criminal jurisdiction over pirates. In an attempt to fight impunity on the high seas, many states have started to revise their practices and adapt their laws. Calls are also rising to fill the “loopholes left by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea”: to address in due manner piracy issues and guarantee adequate balance between the freedom of navigation and the need to ensure the security of their ships and seafarers. This article is an attempt to identify the shortcomings of the existing provisions on piracy provided in international documents, discuss their applicability in fighting the piracy (namely by their ability to ensure the necessary jurisdiction over the crimes at sea) and offer an opinion on possible ways of addressing impunity at sea, both by national and international legal instruments.

  • The Japanese Act on the Punishment of and Measures against Piracy
    • Authors: Jun Tsuruta
      Pages: 237 - 245
      Abstract: Abstract Japan enacted and put into effect “the Act on the Punishment of and Measures against Piracy” in 2009. This note is intended to clarify some of the significances of the Act, by assessing the limitation of Japanese measures against and punishment of piracy before the enactment of the Act. The Act stipulates the definition of piracy, by making reference to the definition of piracy stipulated in Article 101 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, and criminalizes piracy, irrespective of the nationality of its wrongdoers committing it. The enactment of the Act made it possible for the Japanese Government to escort not only Japanese-registered ships but also non-Japanese-registered ships as “prevention and suppression of crimes at sea.” And it makes piracy punishable irrespective of the nationality of its wrongdoers committing it. However, it has to be well examined when and how the universal jurisdiction adopted by the Act should be exercised, taking into consideration that the exercise of such jurisdiction is only exceptional to the flag state’s exercising of jurisdiction on the high seas.

  • On the interaction between law and science: considerations on the ongoing
           process of regulating underwater acoustic pollution
    • Authors: Irini Papanicolopulu
      Pages: 247 - 265
      Abstract: Abstract Scientific and technological development necessitates often legal regulation, to be achieved through an interaction between science and law during the decision-making process. Taking as an example the case of underwater noise pollution, the examination of which is underway in many international organisations with a view towards its regulation, the article proposes to comment upon some aspects of this interaction. It is finally submitted that law provides sufficient legal principles and institutionalised frameworks for cooperation, which however have not been sufficiently put in use so far.

           the Law of the Sea
    • Authors: Ioannis Konstantinidis
      Pages: 267 - 285
      Abstract: Abstract On the basis of the maritime boundary dispute between Bangladesh and Myanmar in the Bay of Bengal, the scope of this article is to briefly describe the relative procedures provided by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea Part XV and to analyse an important part of this dispute concerning the delimitation of the outer continental shelf. Following this reasoning, a special reference is made to the Commission on the limits of the continental shelf, to which Myanmar submitted all information and data for its continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles in the Bay of Bengal.

  • Evidence in international adjudication: map evidence in territorial
           sovereignty dispute cases
    • Authors: Romulo R. Ubay
      Pages: 287 - 300
      Abstract: Abstract This paper tackles the two distinct but related topics of evidence in international adjudication and map evidence in territorial sovereignty dispute cases. The second section of this paper provides a general discussion on evidence in international adjudication and concludes that the immensity of the types of evidence is also attributable to the wide discretion of courts and tribunals in assessing evidence. This sets the backdrop for the third section which aims to explore the assessment of map evidence in territorial sovereignty dispute cases. It is increasingly acknowledged that in international adjudication there is a deficiency of a more thorough and systematic approach to questions of evidence or on how evidence is produced, presented, and assessed. This paper hopes to contribute in filling this gap by examining the case of map evidence, in particular, how maps are being assessed as evidence in the adjudication of territorial sovereignty disputes.

  • The IWC moratorium on commercial whaling was not a value judgment and was
           not intended as a permanent prohibition
    • Authors: Joji Morishita; Dan Goodman
      Pages: 301 - 311
      Abstract: Abstract A review of the International Whaling Commission’s institutional discourse related to the “moratorium” as reflected in the Commission’s documents together with a literal reading of Schedule paragraph 10(e) of the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling (ICRW) shows that the moratorium does not include language which permanently prohibits commercial whaling, does not include any expression which demonizes whaling, does not label the killing for commercial purposes as criminal as opposed to catching for indigenous purposes, and does not reflect any value judgments about whales and whaling. Rather, this paper shows that with only few exceptions these documents together with the language of paragraph 10(e) clearly demonstrate that the moratorium was intended as a temporary conservation and management measure related to uncertainties of scientific information. Notwithstanding this, anti-whaling NGOs have mischaracterized the moratorium as a permanent prohibition or ban on commercial whaling. This mischaracterization was a major factor in the failure of the “Future of IWC” process which was aimed at getting compromises from both pro-whaling and anti-whaling members to resolve the bipolar, conflictive and dysfunctional nature of the organization. Finally, it is concluded that the moratorium as a permanent prohibition would be inconsistent with the purpose of the ICRW and that science related to the management of whales and international law, in this case the literal interpretation and implementation of the Schedule paragraph 10(e), provide the only possible means to resolve the controversy concerning whaling.

  • What is a ship? The Policy of the International Fund for Compensation for
           Oil Pollution Damage: the effect of the Greek Supreme Court judgment in
           the Slops case
    • Authors: Zuzanna Peplowska
      Pages: 157 - 164
      Abstract: Abstract The international compensation regime for oil pollution damage established by the CLC 1992 and the 1992 Fund Convention covers damages caused by discharge of oil from a ship. The definition of a ship under the Conventions has been interpreted by the 1992 Fund as to include floating storage units (FSUs) and floating production storage and offloading units (FPSOs) only when they carry oil as cargo on a voyage to or from a port or a terminal, outside the oil field in which they normally operate. Accordingly, the 1992 Fund rejected claims arising from Slops incident, a spill from a waste oil reception facility, formerly a tanker, which remained permanently anchored with its engine being deactivated. However, the Greek Supreme Court in its decision from June 2006 held that Slops falls within the definition of a ‘ship’ under 1992 CLC/Fund Convention. The judgment raises important issues for the functioning of the international compensation system.
