Abstract: The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) also referred to as the law of the sea convention is the international agreement that resulted from the third United Nations Conference on the law of the sea (UNCLOS III). The law of the sea convention defines the maritime zones, the rights, responsibilities and limitations to the rights of the coastal states with respect to their use of the world's oceans. The UNCLOS codified many aspects of customary international law and also incorporated several modem issues like environment, fisheries, and coastal zone management. Despite the phenomenal contribution of the convention, several challenges remain, including excessive proliferation of maritime claims, and criminal activity at sea under false flag state control. The study seeks to investigate these situations and concludes with several recommendations.
