Abstract

The Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage, adopted in 2001, addresses rights, jurisdiction and duties of States in the various maritime zones set out in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. This article argues that the manner in which the Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage does so is compatible and consistent with the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and that there exists, in this respect, no international barrier hindering broad state participation in this important protective regime.

Keywords: maritime zones, state jurisdiction, wrecks, Convention on the Protection of Underwater Cultural Heritage, UN Convention on the Law of the Sea
