"Exploring a selection of current issues in international law as they pertain to South Pacific countries and Antarctica, this volume covers diverse topics including mass refugee flows, transnational crime, international terrorism, freedom of navigation, climate change, international trade agreements and bioprospecting in Antarctica. As well as presenting a critical evaluation of these issues, the book offers an introduction to the South Pacific region and the instruments and institutional arrangements which facilitate co-operation and co-ordination within it. Tensions and interactions with external forces emanating from the global community and from key players outside the region are analyzed in the context of particular issues. International Law Issues in the South Pacific will be a valuable resource for students, researchers and policy makers with an interest in the region and in contemporary international law issues."--Provided by publisher.
