Description

Taking the North-East Atlantic Ocean as an example of regional practice, this book addresses the dual approach to ocean governance in international law. It examines the interaction between zonal and integrated management approaches and the conservation of marine living resources and marine biological diversity. The study examines the limitations of the traditional zonal approach and suggests new possibilities for conformity between sovereign states, international law and sustainable development.

Reviews

'Dr Tanaka finds that the zonal approach, which divides the sea into jurisdictional spaces, and the integrated management approach, which considers the sea as one physical unity, should be reconciled. I share many, even if not all, of his remarks. But this is the most clear, logical, documented and thought-provoking book on international law of the sea that I have read in the last decade.' Tullio Scovazzi, University of Milano-Bicocca, Milan, Italy
