Lloyd s MIU Handbook of Maritime Security

Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 1420054813
Release Date: 2008-09-24
Genre: Law

Managing the ever-changing nature and cross-disciplinary challenges of the maritime sector demands a complete understanding of the special characteristics of the maritime space. The complexity of the operations of ships, ports, shipping companies, and naval and coast guard maritime security operations—as well as the economic significance and the inherent security vulnerabilities of global maritime trade—requires a thorough, holistic and adaptable understanding of commercial, law enforcement and naval maritime security phenomena. Written by a team of expert contributors, this book identifies and assesses the issues inherent in developing and implementing maritime security measures. It examines the new maritime security environment, including the different but complementary interests of the shipping industry and national regulatory agencies. The coverage includes analyses of the different threats to maritime security and how they are perceived by different actors in the maritime domain. The editors evaluate the international and national legal frameworks developed for specific sectors and the responses that different nations have given to these initiatives. Comprehensive in scope, the volume addresses security concerns that pertain to a wide spectrum of commercial shipping and maritime security situations, regulatory frameworks, sector-specific vulnerabilities, regional nuances, and port facilities.

Publisher: Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.
ISBN: 9781409499251
Release Date: 2013-03-28
Genre: Political Science

Maritime security is of vital importance to the South China Sea, a critical sea route for maritime transport of East Asian countries including China. The adjacent countries have rendered overlapping territorial and/or maritime claims in the South China Sea which complicate the situation of maintaining maritime security and developing regional cooperation there. This book focuses on contemporary maritime security in the South China Sea as well as its connected sea area, the Straits of Malacca and Singapore. It identifies and examines selected security issues concerning the safety of navigation, crackdown on transnational crimes including sea piracy and maritime terrorism, and conflict prevention and resolution. In the context of non-traditional security, issues such as maritime environmental security and search and rescue at sea are included. The book explores ways and means of international cooperation in dealing with these maritime security issues.

Maritime Work Law Fundamentals Responsible Shipowners Reliable Seafarers

Genre: Law

The importance of international maritime labour law - both as a component of - ternational maritime law, and in socio-political and economic terms - has been recognised by the IMO International Maritime Law Institute for a number of years. Indeed, the Institute has annually organised a course on maritime labour law with the participation of inter alia the International Maritime Organization, the - ternational Labour Organization, the International Transport Workers’ Federation, and the German Shipowners’ Association. It was therefore a great pleasure when the authors invited me to introduce their forthcoming monograph on Maritime Work Law Fundamentals: Responsible S- powners Reliable Seafarers. As the title suggests, a fundamental challenge of this branch of international maritime law is to achieve a balance between the interests of the two main stakeholders. Institutionally, the effort to achieve this balance dates back a number of decades with its genesis mainly found in the work of the International Labour Organization. It has to be said that whilst this effort achieved great progress, it has led to a haphazard, plethora of legal instruments.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich BWL - Wirtschaftspolitik, Note: 1,3, Fachhochschule Worms, Veranstaltung: Aussenwirtschaft und interntionale Verkehrswirtschaft, 50 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Terroranschlage von New York, Djerba, Bali, Madrid und London haben weltweit das Sicherheitsbedurfnis in den Vordergrund geruckt. Im Hinblick auf die Anschlage auf Schiffe (Achille Lauro 1985, USS Cole 2000, VLLC Limburg 2002)wird ebenso deutlich, dass auch die internationale Seeschifffahrt, einschliesslich der Hafenanlagen, einer Verbesserung der Sicherheit bedurfte. Die moglichen Gefahren fur Schiffe und Hafen stellen sich dar durch Anschlage auf eben diese, Missbrauch von Schiffen und / oder Containern zum Gebrauch als Bomben oder zum Schmuggel von Waffen und Menschen sowie Schiffsentfuhrungen. Jahrlich werden 1.600 Millionen Tonnen Fracht auf dem Seeweg in die oder aus der Europaischen Union in andere Staaten ein- bzw. ausgefuhrt, der internationale Seeverkehr macht mehr als 90 % des Welthandels aus. Somit bietet er potentiellen Terroristen ein reizvolles" Ziel, da ein Anschlag auf die internationale Lieferkette den Verkehr zum Erliegen bringen und damit der Weltwirtschaft erheblichen Schaden zugefugt werden wurde. Um die Risiken terroristischer Anschlage auf Hafen und Schiff moglichst gering zu halten, wurden - als Reaktion auf vergangene Geschehnisse - weltweit Sicherheitsinitiativen und -konzepte entwickelt. Diejenigen, die die Sicherheit in Hafenanlagen betreffen, werden in dieser Seminararbeit dargestell
