State Responsibility for Interferences with the Freedom of Navigation in Public International Law

Book

Part of the Hamburg Studies on Maritime Affairs book series (HAMBURG, volume 11)

About this book

Introduction

A multitude of conventions in the area of the Law of the Sea contains provisions on the issue of compensation for (wrongful) interferences with navigation. Even though interferences by warships and coast guard vessels, due to a perceived increased risk of international crimes at sea, seem to have become more frequent, the compensation provisions have hardly been applied. The book analyses all relevant compensation provisions and compares them to the general law of state responsibility. This necessarily includes a discussion of issues like the responsibility of international organizations, liability for lawful conduct and several and joint liability in public international law.
