Litigating law of the sea disputes using the UNCLOS Dispute Settlement System
Karim, Saiful (2011) Litigating law of the sea disputes using the UNCLOS Dispute Settlement System. In Litigating International Law Disputes : Weighing the Options, 23 September 2011, The Mint, Sydney, NSW. (Unpublished)
The interpretation and application of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) may be the source of many disputes. UNCLOS introduced an à la carte menu for dispute settlement with a number of options for international dispute resolution, including a compulsory procedure entailing binding decisions. While drafting this ambitious and complex system of dispute settlement, the drafters had to negotiate many delicate compromises to secure a system for the uniform interpretation of the Convention. The aim of this paper r is to explore why litigation using the UNCLOS dispute settlement system is, or is not, a preferred mode of settlement for law of the sea disputes.
