Managing and Protecting the Offshore Estate
Managing and Protecting the Offshore Estate

PDF : 17 MB

Jack McCaffrie


This volume is the published proceedings of a seminar held in Sydney in early 1994, hosted in conjunction with the Centre for Maritime Policy (now ANCORS), University of Wollongong; and the Australian Naval Institute. In late 1994, Australia declared a 200nm exclusive economic zone, bringing with it the responsibility for the management and protection of an expanded offshore estate. The implications of this increased responsibility are examined, including: the legal issues, the threat from illegal activity, the limitations and costs of different surveillance and enforcement systems, and the coordination of command arrangements.
