|Justice Winston Anderson of the Trinidad-based Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), has released his latest publication, titled “The Law of the Sea in the Caribbean”.
The book is published by Brill Academic Publishers, a Dutch international publisher founded in 1683 in Leiden, the Netherlands which prides itself on producing, “Over three centuries of scholarly publishing.”
“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,” according to a statement the US-based A Global Internet Learning Experience (AGILE) Learning Inc.
It said that the topics covered in the publication 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,” according to the statement.
It said the Law of the Sea in the Caribbean is the latest academic text authored by Justice Anderson, who has written several other leading texts including Caribbean Private International Law (2014) and Principles of Caribbean Environmental Law (2012).
The Jamaican born justice Anderson is also editor of the Eminent Caribbean Jurists Series published by the CCJ Academy for Law, of which he is Chairman.
