Modern aspects of the laws of naval warfare and maritime neutrality

Analyse: This thesis looks into some selected aspects of the laws applicable to armed conflicts at sea
Part one which deals with means and methods of combat addresses issues such as the legality of the war zone device, the legal rules of sea mining, or the notions of ruses of war and perfidy in the maritime context
Part two which is devoted to the legal limits of belligerent interference with neutral property at sea touches upon the evolution of the notion of maritime neutrality, the contemporary aspects of the theory of absolute contraband, and finally the particulars of prize law such as the techniques of continuous voyage, visit and search or neutral convoying in their modern cast
The study proceeds upon the understanding that the traditional laws of naval warfare and maritime neutrality as elaborated in various conventional arrangements in 1907 at The Hague are in desparate need for deep reforms and modernization since ill-suited to cope with today's realities
