When maritime transport is discussed, it is necessary to talk about maritime accidents.  Books written about the international law of the sea cannot be devoid of talking about maritime accidents. Therefore, the international community and national societies have been concerned to put an end to the losses these accidents may cause.

The special nature of maritime accidents leads to a state of conflict of laws supposed to be applied to the accident, and what makes the matter worse is the attempt of each country to adhere to its internal laws as a manifestation of sovereignty that it prefers to appear on the scene of international relations.  Topics to be addressed include:

  • Introduction to the development and dynamics of international and national law of the sea (5 minutes)
  • What is meant by marine accidents in general? (5 minutes)
