FLAGS OF CONVENIENCE IN THE PACIFIC; PROSPECTS FOR PROLIFERATION, IMPACT, AND REGULATION

The paper examines some of the problems arising from refuge under foreign flags and the legal issues which accompany them. It also discusses the Pacific basin as a potential locale for flag of convenience operations, which until recently have been confined largely to Atlantic and Mediterranean states. It is suggested that the failure of both national and international attempts to regulate flags of convenience suggests that the problem may be rooted in the economic rather than the legal sphere. It is further theorized that effective control of flags of convenience and the resolution of their accompanying dangers and inequities can only be possible upon a natural culmination of international interests.
