There are various ways in which disputes concerning the law of the sea may be settled peacefully. This chapter begins by providing an overview of how disputes are settled under general international law, considering first the role of municipal courts and diplomatic protection before then summarising the various ways in which inter-state disputes may be settled peacefully. It then sets out the mechanisms for the settlement of disputes under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, analysing the provisions of Part XV in detail, including its elaborate compulsory dispute settlement provisions (with reference to the relevant case law). It concludes by considering two general issues concerning dispute settlement, namely locus standi and the rules for treaty interpretation.
