Jurisdiction over Ships: Post-UNCLOS Developments in the Law of the Sea' analyses international law developments in shipping since the adoption of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) in 1982. The Conventions rules on the rights and obligations of flag states, coastal states and port states, have by and large been accepted and adhered to by states, but the legal regime for the oceans is neither complete nor static, nor was it intended to be so. New issues have surfaced while old issues have changed their character. Developments in law and practice have already resulted in some divergences between the jurisdictional scheme outlined in UNCLOS and how states in reality exercise their jurisdiction over ships. In this book, 18 leading academics in the field study a number of such developments in more detail, providing a practical guide to the state of the law at present while at the same time offering insights into how international law develops in this field.00Henrik Ringbom, PhD (2007), University of Oslo, is Professor II at the Scandinavian Institute of Maritime Law in Oslo, Norway and Adjunct Professor at Åbo Akademi University in Turku/Åbo, Finland. He has published widely on maritime law and the law of the sea, including 'The EU Maritime Safety Policy and International Law' (Brill 2008).
