Abstract

This volume examines the legal issues associated with the naval protection of shipping from an Australian perspective. Australia relies heavily on seaborne trade for its economic prosperity, yet has a very small national shipping fleet, instead relying on foreign owned and flagged vessels. The legal issues surrounding how Australian trade might be protected in both peace and war are examined.
