              Limitation of Liability in International Maritime Conventions: The Relationship between Global Limitation Conventions and Particular Liability Regimes
               

              Limitation of Liability in International Maritime Conventions: The Relationship between Global Limitation Conventions and Particular Liability Regimes (Hardback)

              By Martinez Gutierrez, Norman A.

              Limitation of liability for maritime claims is a concept of respectable antiquity which is now deeply entrenched in the maritime industry. Under this concept, the shipowner is entitled to limit his liability for maritime claims up to a maximum sum regardless of the actual amount ...of the claims. The concept of limitation of liability has been adopted by many conventions ranging from those relating to the carriage of goods by sea, carriage of passengers and their luggage by sea, liability and compensation for pollution damage, to liability for the removal of wrecks. Each of these conventions carries with it its own particular approach to limitation of liability and has been drafted with a specific problem in mind. However, these particular liability regimes share the international arena with the global limitation conventions such as the 1976 International Convention on Limitation of Liability for Maritime Claims (LLMC Convention) and the 1996 Protocol thereto. This book approaches limitation of liability from an international perspective looking at a number of key conventions including the LLMC Convention and the 1996 Protocol, the Athens Convention and the 1976 Athens Protocol, the Nairobi Convention as well as conventions relating to the carriage of passengers and their luggage by sea, and those covering liability and compensation for pollution damage. Each chapter of this book sets out to analyze provisions in the conventions which have proved to be controversial and subject to debate by courts and authors, as well as the relationship between the limitation provisions in claim specific liability conventions and in the global limitation conventions. Particular attention is also given to the persons entitled to limit liability, ships in respect of which liability can be limited, claims subject to limitation, claims excepted from limitation, basis of liability (where applicable), loss of the right to limit, and the limits of liability.

It challenges the conventional interpretation of natural law as necessarily and intractably ...theological, and the dominant conception of international relations.
