The present publication presents the selected reference materials relating to the problems of rescue at sea. As the title implies, the content of the document also covers such important aspects as marine interception and stowaways. In short, it is the collection of the regulatory documentation addressing the above-mentioned matters.
The first part of the book is dealing with the international law of the sea, and here the readers will find the international instruments including UNCLOS and International Convention on Salvage, SOLAS, SAR and FAL, plus the Convention on the High Seas. Moreover, this part also contains the relevant IMO Guidelines.
The second part will be valuable for those interested in the international refugee law - they will find all important conventions, interventions, guidelines and position papers issued to cover this problem; several key conference and meeting materials released by UNHCR have also been included.
Three remaining parts of the book are dealing with the international criminal law, humanitarian law and human rights. A definitely useful publication for those with the professional interest in the maritime industry and shipping law with the focus made on rescue at sea and associated issues.
