Abstract

In the book under review, author Edwin Egede explores the role of Africa 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. This book is an accomplishment which puts forward a distinctive African flavor to the discourse of the regime of the deep seabed beyond national jurisdiction and the concept of the common heritage of mankind. The book review is published in the 'De Jure' (ISSN 2225-7160), which is an open access online law journal of the University of Pretoria.

Keywords: Law of the Sea, Africa, Deep Sea Bed Area, Common Heritage of Mankind, UNCLOS 1982
