  • Henrik Ringbom
  • Marko Joas
Part of the MARE Publication Series book series (MARE, volume 18)


The concluding chapter summarizes the findings on the book and makes a series of conclusions relating to jurisdictional matters as well as the substantive topics covered. It is noted that several regulatory gaps still exist in the regulation of the environment in the Baltic Sea and seeks to use the sample of issues discussed in the book for making some more general observations on the development, nature and consequences of various types of gaps in the specific Baltic Sea context.
