The monograph published in Russian by the Institute of World Economy and International Relations, Russian Academy of Sciences (IMEMO RAN) in 2014. That study considers “The 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea” (UNCLOS) as the universal legal regulator towards maritime spaces and resources. The author analyses a lot of cases of violations of basic Articles of UNCLOS, committed (directly and indirectly) by states. Dr. Gudev answers to the main questions of the book: has the UNCLOS become a genuine “Constitution” of the Seas; would the regime, generated by it, remain unchanged in the new international conditions?
