The Baltic Sea is unique with regard to its geography, climate and environment. Its uniqueness is also reflected in policy and governance. The book examines the regulation of the Baltic Sea from different perspectives, including navigation, the protection of the marine environment, fisheries, marine scientific research and future challenges for the law of the sea in the Baltic Sea. The book thus also represents a maritime case study of how international, European and national laws interact in the Baltic Sea Region.
