The Honourable Justice Mr. Winston Anderson, a Judge on the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), the apex Court in the Caribbean, has authored The Law of the Sea in the Caribbean, the latest scholarly contribution to an important field of International Law in the Caribbean.
Using the lens of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, adopted in Kingston, Jamaica, on 10 December 1982, the book examines the possibilities for contribution by the Law of the Sea to economic and social development in the Region. The topics traversed include maritime jurisdiction, fisheries, offshore oil and gas, marine scientific research, peace and security, navigation, pollution, the deep seabed, maritime boundary delimitation, and dispute settlement.
The book is premised on the fact that a generation of legal pioneers imagined a decisive role for the Law of the Sea in the advancement of developing states, and it attempts to give an account, in the fortieth year of the adoption of the Convention, of the reach of the Law of the Sea into Caribbean development.
The Law of the Sea in the Caribbean argues for greater regional cooperation as a means of achieving the promise of truly significant participation by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea in Caribbean development.
