About the product

The international community has long recognized the special situation of straits as linkages between oceans and seas and their consequential importance for maritime communications and trade. Volume I discusses the use of straits for international navigation. The early chapters cover the work of the International Law Commission and the statements of delegations. The final chapters focus on the work of the Third United Nations Conference of the Law of the Sea.
