The End of the Grotian Era? Maintaining Order and Good Governance at Sea

Professor Steven Haines

70% of the Earth's surface is not subject to sovereign administration and remains an anarchic space. New technologies pose serious challenges to the notion of High Seas Freedom. Is regulation inevitable and, if so, who will impose it and how?

This is the 2013 Peter Nailor Memorial Lecture on Defence.
