     View Summary

    Abstract

    After almost two decades of discussions and negotiations, the legally binding instrument on biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction (‘BBNJ’) was adopted on 19 June 2023, of which Environment Impact Assessment (‘EIA’) is one of the key pillars. Given that EIA in the new instrument is proposed with a view to the conservation and sustainable use of marine life in areas beyond national jurisdiction, flag States should mainly have an obligation to regulate EIA by applying their domestic legislation. However, for some activities involving many vessels, marine structures, and cables, EIA by flag States may not work effectively. EIAs for offshore windfarm activities may be particularly difficult. Against this background, this study explores how international legal rules should regulate EIAs of offshore windfarms established in areas beyond national jurisdiction. In particular, this study considers which States should have EIA obligations from the perspective of both lex lata and lex ferenda.

     View Summary

    <jats:title>Abstract</jats:title>
    <jats:p>Asia-Pacific States have recourse to the dispute settlement system provided in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (<jats:sc>unclos</jats:sc>) and rely on the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (<jats:sc>clcs</jats:sc>) to delineate the extended continental shelf. <jats:sc>unclos</jats:sc> tribunals are responsible for delimitating maritime zones, and the <jats:sc>clcs</jats:sc> for delineating the outer limits of the continental shelf. However, the work of the <jats:sc>clcs</jats:sc> has been suspended at times, owing to other States’ objections. This article investigates the 2019 Malaysian submission to the <jats:sc>clcs</jats:sc> by reviewing the precedents and existing literature. This submission has become a contentious issue, because of diplomatic note verbales submitted by, among others, China. This article argues that the <jats:sc>clcs</jats:sc> should handle the Malaysian submission on the premise that the Malaysia–China dispute over the so-called “nine-dash line” can be regarded as resolved, based on a 2016 Arbitral Tribunal decision under Annex <jats:sc>vii</jats:sc>.</jats:p>

    SETA Makoto

    The Yearbook of Polar Law   13 ( 1 ) 321 - 340  2022.04  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    <jats:title>Abstract</jats:title>
    <jats:p>As indicated in Goal 14 of the Sustainable Development Goals, the international community tackles marine biodiversity and ecosystem conservation. However, the information on such biodiversity and ecosystems is limited compared to terrestrial conservation. Therefore, global ocean governance needs to acquire such knowledge and situate this knowledge into the decision-making process. In more recent contexts, the scientific approach is gaining acceptance. Meanwhile, the international movement towards human rights protection has gained strength and respect for diversity has also been confirmed. In this tendency, it is natural that the international community seeks to incorporate the ecological knowledge derived from the experience of various actors, so-called Traditional Ecological Knowledge (<jats:sc>TEK</jats:sc>), into the global ocean governance. This tendency is quite strong in the Arctic, where scientific evidence has not accumulated, and many people live with <jats:sc>TEK</jats:sc>. Therefore, the framework to harmonise science with <jats:sc>TEK</jats:sc> in the Arctic Ocean is a worthy model for the rest of waters in the globe. For this purpose, the paper examined three agreements: the Agreement on Enhancing International Arctic Scientific Co-operation (Science Agreement), the Agreement to Prevent Unregulated High Seas Fisheries in the Central Arctic Ocean (<jats:sc>CAOFA</jats:sc>), and the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea on the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Marine Biological Diversity of Areas beyond National Jurisdiction (<jats:sc>BBNJ</jats:sc>) Agreement, a universal treaty.</jats:p>

  • 海洋資源の共同開発をめぐる国際法の展開

    2023  

     View Summary

    南部協定が2028年には終了する可能性があることから、日本及び韓国にとって、2028年後を見据えどのようにすべきかの研究を行った。南部協定は締結が1974年と50年前であることから、社会情勢、国際法の諸規則と、大きく変わっている。社会情勢としては、中国の大国化と脱石油・天然ガスの国際世論、という二点が両国の政策判断にとっては非常に重要となる。一部重複する海域を主張する中国への配慮をする必要があり、また、日本・韓国ともに先進国として脱化石燃料が期待される中、両国での石油・天然ガスの共同開発ということには新たな難しさがある。また、国際法規則、特に、境界画定の規則については南部協定が大きく依拠した北海大陸棚事件から、国際裁判所の判断基準は大きく変わっている。海底の地形、自然延長を重視した同事件の判決に対し、近年は、距離を重視する傾向にある。さらに、ニカラグア=コロンビアの200海里以遠の大陸棚の境界画定事件において、2023年7月にICJは、慣習国際法上、ある国家の大陸棚の権原は基線から200海里を越えて、他の国家の200海里以内には伸長しない、との判決を下した。慣習法の認定プロセスを中心にこの判決には批判も多いが、これが確立していくとなれば、南部協定の設定した共同開発区域の一部について、韓国は権原を有さなくなる。その場合には、既存の制度の維持が国際法の流れからずれることとなり、韓国はもちろん、日本にとっても悩ましい問題と言える。これらの問題については、済州島でシンポジウムが開催された際に韓国の専門家とも意見交換を行い、現在、論文を鋭意執筆中である。

  • 公海上の船舶起因汚染に対する寄港国管轄権の法構造

    2014  

     View Summary

    公海上の船舶起因汚染に対する寄港国管轄権の法構造ということで、船舶起因汚染に対する寄港国管轄権を中心に分析した。まずは、昨年度の研究成果に、EUの実行を加えて検討したものを英語で発表した。近年EUは、海洋環境の保護をより積極的に行おうとする動きを見せているため、その実行は今後も注視していく必要があると考えられる。また、寄港国管轄権を行使し、船員に対してどのような処罰をするか、さらにその際の権利保障をいかに行うかが近年IMOで議論されると同時に、各国の刑事手続きにおいても争点となっていることから、この点について、更なる検討を加えた。その中で、2013年に出版された書籍の書評を発表した。

  • 公海秩序の維持における普遍的管轄権の発展 -管轄権の理論的根拠の検討を通じてー

    2013  

     View Summary

     公海秩序における普遍的管轄権の発展についての研究とし、今年度は、船舶起因汚染に行使される寄港国管轄権に焦点をあて研究を行った。船舶の寄港した国家が外国籍船に対して行使する寄港国管轄権は、現在多数の条約において規定されたり、国家により一方的に行使されたりしている。しかしながら、このような寄港国管轄権が国際法に合致していると言えるかは、必ずしも明確にされているわけではない。これは、属地主義、属人主義、保護主義、普遍主義などに区分される管轄権の適用基準に照らして、寄港国管轄権の根拠がどのように位置づけられるのかが曖昧であることに起因している。この点に関しては、学説においても、国家実行においても、見解が一致していないと言わざるをえない。たとえば、米国やEUの寄港国管轄権の一方的な行使に関しても、当該行使が属地主義に基づくのか、それとも他の基準に基づく管轄権の域外適用とみなされるのか、また仮に域外適用とみなされる場合、いかなる適用基準に基づくのか等について議論が錯綜しているのが現状である。 そこで、本年度の研究においては、こうした状況を踏まえ、近年の米国やEUの実行を詳細に検討することによって、寄港国管轄権の適用基準を明確にし、どのような態様の寄港国管轄権の行使であれば現行国際法に合致していると言えるのかを明らかにした。中でも、寄港国管轄権が普遍主義に基づくと考えられることから、なぜ、公海上での船舶起因汚染に対し、そのような普遍的管轄権が認められるのかの理論的根拠について考察を深めた。その結果、以下の二つの結論が得られた。第一に、船舶起因汚染により損害を被る海洋環境を保護することが、現在では国際共同体の実利的利益とみなされていることである。第二に、公海上の汚染に関しては、当該汚染といかなる連関を持っていない国家に対しても管轄権の行使を許容することが環境保護につながるということである。
