ARE THE LEGAL FRONTIERS OF NAVIGATION IN PERIL?

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: I suspect that I was asked to speak at the end of your splendid two-day program so that you might truly appreciate--by contrast-the prior speakers and their topics. By the time I complete my short talk on the present international legal problems concerning navigation on the oceans, I believe all of you will be grateful that you have chosen to devote yourselves to the technical and scientific side of navigation. Yet I must alert you to the fact that the freedom to navigate the oceans is threatened today as it has never been-except in time of war-since the Dutch jurist Grotius published his classic "Freedom of the Seas” in 1608. In his opening chapter Grotius wrote, “By the Law of Nations navigation is free to all persons whatsoever.”
