New Publications from the Law of the Sea Institute
The Law of the Sea Institute continues to break new ground with the publication of three new books from Brill Publishers:
Regions, Institutions, and Law of the Sea: Studies in Ocean Governance, edited by Harry N. Scheiber, LOSI Co-Director, and Jin-Hyun Paik, Judge of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. The book is based on proceedings from the LOSI conference, “Institutions and Regions of Ocean Governance," held in Hamburg, Germany on October 5-6, 2010, and co-sponsored by Inha University. “The book offers fresh perspectives both on issues specific to major ocean regions, and on the nature and functions of institutions that implement the legal order of the oceans. Of special interest is a set of chapters by distinguished scholars and jurists providing nuanced analysis of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea as a key actor in the institutional and regime structure.”
Governing Ocean Resources: New Challenges and Emerging Regimes: A Tribute to Judge Choon-Ho Park, edited by the late Jon M. Van Dyke, University of Hawai’i at Manoa, Sherry P. Broder, University of Hawai’i at Manoa, Seokwoo Lee, Inha University, and Jin-Hyun Paik, Seoul National University. The book “examines the current state of the Law of the Sea today, offers a variety of new approaches to the field, and serves as a tribute to the late Judge Choon-ho Park, whose profound depth of learning and indomitable spirit of optimism regarding the possibilities of reform and improvement comprised an immense contribution to the study of the Law of the Sea.”
