Re-Examining the Compulsory Conflict Resolution Mechanisms Provided Under the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea

BABATUNDE Isaac Olutoyin


Nature endowed the world with large expanse of water otherwise known as the oceans. It covers almost 71.4 percent of the entire earth surface.Laws are put in place to regulate the activities of states in dealing with the exploration and exploitation of its living and non-living resources. At times, in making attempts to use the ocean for peaceful purposes, conflicts do arise and in such situations, mechanisms are put in place to ensure that they do not escalate beyond manageable proportion so as not to endanger world peace and security. This paper holistically appraised the various mechanisms,( particularly the compulsory dispute resolution mechanisms) put in place to address the resolution of disputes arising from states’ activities under the 1982 Convention on the Law of the Sea and evaluated its adequacy or otherwise.
