CIL Research Project on International Maritime Crimes
In 2010, CIL initiated a Research Project on International Maritime Crimes to examine whether States in the region could establish an effective legal framework to combat international maritime crimes such as piracy, ship hijacking and kidnapping of crew through the ratification and implementation of relevant international and regional conventions. Pursuant to this Research Project, CIL commissioned academics from twelve countries to examine the ratification and implementation of these international and regional conventions relevant to international maritime crimes (Country Reports).
These Country Reports included an analysis of the treaty practice of these countries and provided the foundation for this Research Project on Treaty Law and Practice. More information on the Research Project on International Maritime Crimes and the Country Reports can be found here.
