oa De Jure - Africa and the Deep Seabed Regime: Politics and International Law of the Common Heritage of Mankind, Edwin Egede : book announcement

 

Abstract

In , the author Edwin Egede explores the role of Africa, the second largest of the seven continents on earth, in the development and establishment of the regime of the deep seabed beyond national jurisdiction and the concept of the Common Heritage of Mankind. A salient feature of this book is that the author delves into examining the intriguing and lopsided regime of the deep seabed beyond national jurisdiction and the concept of the Common Heritage of Mankind exclusively from the viewpoint of African states. The value of this particular work lies in making an effort to fill up the vacuum in the existing academic literature as to the role of African states in the development of the regime of the deep seabed beyond national jurisdiction and the concept of the Common Heritage of Mankind. The author examines African States' contributions to the evolution and development of the international law norms related to this regime and places these contributions in the context of vital historical, social, political and economic factors that generally influence African states' attitudes to international law.
