Volume 1 – ‘Law of the Sea, Interpretation and Definitions’
The “Associazione di Consulenza in Diritto del Mare” (ASCOMARE) is pleased to inaugurate its Yearbook on the Law of the Sea (YLoS). The First Volume will focus on ‘Law of the Sea and Definitions.’ Contributions are sought in respect of articles examining the content and legal scope of undefined terms of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and other related instruments. The call also appreciates papers assessing the historical and evolutionary meaning of such terms against the backdrop of State practices and international case-law.
Submissions are welcome both in English and Italian.
The most insightful contribution will be awarded with a copy of the prestigious Volume I of the “United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982: A Commentary” (Virginia Commentary).
Deadline for submission of abstracts: January 30th, 2021.
In order to promote a uniform interpretation and application of the provisions of the Convention, Volume I of the YLoS aims to provide an influential legal viewpoint on the meaning of undefined terms and phrasal lexemes of the vast universe of the law of the sea. The YLoS strives to serve as a tool to support the work of international law experts, judicial bodies, policy makers and legal practitioners in the field of the law of the sea. In addition, the YLoS seeks to provide students, NGOs and the private sector with an additional instrument to comprehend the meaning and legal scope of law of the sea terms and concepts.
