FREEDOM OF NAVIGATION: PROGRESS REPORT ON THE THIRD UNITED NATIONS CONFERENCE ON THE LAW OF THE SEA
The paper reports on the Conference work as it affects freedom of navigation or as it relates to marine traffic systems. Navigation is one of the longest established uses to which the seas may be put and it is still the most important. Increasingly, however, navigation is having to compete with and accommodate to a host of other uses which demand a share of hydrospace. In addition, jurisdictional extensions seaward and environmental considerations are further limiting freedom of navigation. It is inevitable in these circumstances that freedom of navigation should be a freedom so regulated as to reconcile it in an equitable way with other freedoms to use the sea and to protect the environment. An attempt to reconcile these differences was made at the Conference in the Informal Single Negotiating Text, which the paper discusses.
