Item description for Sea-Bed Energy and Minerals:The International Legal Regime (Sea-Bed Energy and Minerals) by E. Brown...
This three-volume work is concerned with the rules of international law governing the exploitation of the energy and mineral resources to be found on and under the sea-bed.
The purpose of the second volume is to present an analysis of the legal regime governing the exploration and exploitation of the mineral resources of the Area' beyond the limits of national jurisdiction, that is, the area lying seaward of the outer limit of the continental shelf. It places the United Nations regime in historical perspective by examining the forces which have shaped the compromise embodied in the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, as modified by the 1994 Implementation Agreement, and provides a comprehensive study of the three pillars of the regime: Part XI of the Convention, with the related Resolution on pioneer activities in the Area; the Implementation Agreement; and the Mining Code adopted in July 2000.
Detailed though the provisions of Part XI of the Convention and of the Implementation Agreement are, a Mining Code is required for the practical day-to-day implementation of the regime. Brown provides a detailed analysis of this Code, together with an examination of the special provision made for pioneer investors. An account is also given of the conflict which existed between the UN regime and the Reciprocating States Regime, showing how a compromise solution was facilitated by the adoption of the Implementation Agreement. Given the complexity of this conventional regime, new institutions were clearly required for its development and administration and the author provides an account of the new International Seabed Authority, its several organs and related institutions. Also explored is the elaborate provision made for the settlement of disputes and the role of both the International Seabed Authority and national administrations in safeguarding the marine environment from the impact of sea-bed mining.
This is a work of significance for academics, practitioners and policy-makers concerned with the legal regime governing sea-bed mining.
