The author of the present book, Urs Daniel Engels, was intending to provide the readers with the results of a very in-depth analysis of the Convention concerning the recycling of ships that was adopted in Hong Kong some time ago, in May 2009. He has also conducted a professional and detailed analysis of the overall status of the existing regulations dealing with same. The lack of the ratifications of the above mentioned Convention has also been investigated from both economic and legal sides. The first part of the book is mainly focusing on the historical background of the entering into force provisions of this Convention. Taking into account that subject provision is providing a significant additional obstacle for the Convention to become legally binding, the next part of the book was arranged to deal with the unilateral actions in this field. The author has also provided a brief but comprehensive overview of the legal environment of the existing legislation concerning the ship recycling in Europe. In addition to that, the book also contains the evaluation of numerous reasonable proposals made by the EU with the intention to tackle the real problems of ship recycling of today. The useful paper for people working in this field.
