Ivana Zovko LL.B.:
Good international environmental governance in marine pollution matters largely rests with effective instruments of liability and compensation for transboundary environmental damage. This paper examines concepts and legal instruments in global and regional international law for providing prompt, adequate and effective compensation for harm to the marine environment itself, on the example of the Southern Ocean.
Key words: international law of marine pollution; vessel-sourced pollution; liability and compensation for pure environmental damage; effectiveness of international instruments; Southern Ocean.
