About the Authors
  • Analyzing the regulation of vessel-source pollution from the perspective of the political interests of key players in the ship transportation industry, Khee-Jin Tan offers a comprehensive and convincing account of how pollution of the marine environment by ships may be better regulated and reduced. In this timely study, he traces the history of regulation at the International Maritime Organisation (I.M.O.) and investigates the political, economic and social forces influencing the IMO treaties. Also examined are the efforts of maritime states, ship-owners, cargo owners, oil companies and environmental groups to influence IMO laws and treaties.

    • Provides analysis of the political and economic background to the International Maritime Organization treaties which regulate pollution from ships
    • Provides analysis of the positions of the various state and industry players, including interviews
    • Offers solutions for improving regulation to stamp out the practice of 'sub-standard' shipping
