In this book, the exposition of the Common Heritage of Humanity as a fundamental principle of international law gives a view of the "deep blue sea", which the author describes through the politics of international ocean law and policy. The book argues why - and how - the Common Heritage principle is an important ingredient in any global programme for sustainable development. This work offers an intellectual and moral challenge to legal philosophers and practitioners alike, in the ocean arena and beyond.

The content and status of the precautionary principle remains highly debated and various questions arise, such as its status as a rule of customary international law, including its scope, addressee, triggering threshold, precautionary action measures, and eventually limits of the principle. Thus, this volume examines the state of affairs in 2003 regarding the implementation of the principle in the law of the sea in different sectors: like, pollution of the marine environment, conservation and management of living marine resources, and transboundary transports of radioactive and hazardous wastes. In addition, it extracts evidence of its acceptance as part of customary international law, and indicates that below this level there is also an emerging practice of international law of applying the precautionary principle in a common way.
