Right of innocent passage of ships carrying ultra-hazardous cargoes
Título:
Right of innocent passage of ships carrying ultra-hazardous cargoes
Contenido:
Introduction -- Right of innocent passage as negotiated at UNCLOS III -- Discussion of arguments and claims by coastal States -- Conclusion.
Resumen:
The purpose of this paper is to analyse the legitimacy of such claims (contrary, prima facie, to the principle of freedom of navigation) under international law. For this purpose, the relevant rules of international law and the arguments invoked by doctrine and states in favour of a right to refuse passage to such ships shall be presented and discussed. This analysis will focus, therefore, on possible limits to the right of innocent passage, through the EEZ and territorial sea of third party states, of commercial ships carrying ultra-hazardous cargoes, such as highly radioactive material. It will exclude, however, military vessels and passage through international straits. The right of coastal States to require prior notification of passage (without implying a request for authorisation) will also be addressed.
