The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) was first established in Montego Bay in 1982, but it was not brought into force until 1994. Undoubtedly, the preponderance of interstate arbitration stems from UNCLOS. Given that the majority of the planet is covered by water and that 168 states have ratified the agreement, the fact is hardly surprising. The objective of this article is to study arbitration as a way of resolving disputes, with particular emphasis on the judgement of one of the most major cases - The Arctic Sunrise Arbitration, referred to under Part XV and Annex VII of the Convention.
