In this book, which is an expansion of part of Dr Greenfield's earlier book China and the Law of the Sea, Air, and Environment, the author examines the current practice of the Government of the People's Republic of China in relation to the law of the sea, an area in which the CPR has latelybecome an active participant in the UN system. Concentrating on the Law of the Sea Convention which was signed by China this study also looks at recent efforts made by China to protect her offshore petroleum resources. Drawing on the much larger literature now available to foreign scholars, thisbook is set to become the definitive study of the subject.

China, the United States, and 21st-Century Sea Power

Defining a Maritime Security Partnership

China's rise on the world's oceans is attracting wide attention and may ultimately restructure the global balance of power during the course of the 21st century. Many books have described this phenomenon and the significant strategic implications that flow from Beijing's rapid maritime development. However, the subject of whether and how to potentially integrate a stronger China into a global maritime security partnership has not been adequately explored. Delving into a variety of vital domains of contemporary maritime security, American and Chinese contributors to this edited volume illustrate that despite recent turbulence in U.S.-China military relations, substantial shared interests should enable extensive maritime security cooperation. But for professionals to structure cooperation effectively, they warn, Washington and Beijing must create sufficient political and institutional space.

Managing China's Sovereignty in Hong Kong and Taiwan

Is China always defensive about its sovereignty issues? Does China see sovereignty essentially as 'absolute,' 'Victorian,' or 'Westphalian?' Sow Keat Tok suggests that Beijing has a more nuanced and flexible policy towards 'sovereignty' than previously assumed. By comparing China's changing policy towards Taiwan and Hong Kong, the author relates the role of previous conceptions of the world order in China's conception of modern 'sovereignty', thereby uncovers Beijing's deepest concern when dealing with its sovereignty issues.

The International Law of Maritime Boundaries and the Practice of States in the Mediterranean Sea

This two-part study examines the law governing maritime boundaries and their delimitation, with special attention being paid to the situation in the Mediterranean Sea. The first part of the work looks at the general principles of international law which operate in relation to maritime boundaries and attempts to elucidate a set of substantive rules of law which can be applied in all cases. The second part applies these rules to a number of important and problematic episodes involving boundary disputes in the Mediterranean Sea, in particular those which have centered upon enclosed and semi-enclosed areas. The work will be of particular value to lawyers concerned with law of the sea disputes especially those with a keen interest in the outcome of outstanding problems in the Mediterranean.

Unterseeische Rohrleitungen und Meeresumweltschutz

Eine völkerrechtliche Untersuchung am Beispiel der Ostsee

Aufgrund der zunehmenden Vernetzung internationaler Energiemärkte und der wachsenden Abhängigkeit der Industriestaaten von Öl- und Gasimporten haben Meeresrohrleitungen als maritimes Transportmedium in den letzten Jahrzehnten an Bedeutung gewonnen. Aktuelles Beispiel einer solchen unterseeischen Rohrleitung ist die Nordstream Pipeline. Die vorliegende Arbeit behandelt die in multilateralen Verträgen globaler und regionaler Reichweite niedergelegten völkerrechtlichen Rechte und Pflichten der Staaten sowie internationaler Organisationen bei Verlegung und Betrieb unterseeischer Rohrleitungen. Die Arbeit zeigt die Verschränkung der unterschiedlichen Ebenen sowie Regelungsdefizite auf und fragt, ob das internationale Seerecht, insbesondere das Seerechtsübereinkommen der Vereinten Nationen, den Staaten ausreichende Handlungsinstrumentarien zur Verfügung stellt, um sowohl Meeresumweltschutz als auch Sicherheit bei Verlegung und Betrieb von Seerohrleitungen zu garantieren.

The chapters in this collection respond to the range of interests that have shaped Miéville's fiction from his influential role in contemporary genre debates, to his ability to pose serious philosophical questions about state control, revolutionary struggle, regimes of apartheid, and the function of international law in a globalized world. This collection demonstrates how Miéville's fictions offer a striking example of contemporary literature's ability to imagine alternatives to neoliberal capitalism at a time of crisis for leftist ideas within the political realm.
