Adv Orin Shefler on UNCLOS and the Protection of Innocent & Transit Passage in Maritime Chokepoints

In the absence of a UN Security Council mandate, it is difficult to ensure innocent and transit passage through navigational straits and/ or territorial waters ("Maritime Chokepoints"). For example, each of the Gulf of Eden, the Red Sea, Bab-el-Mandeb and the Straits of Hormuz would qualify as Maritime Chokepoints through which third country shipping must be granted extensive rights to transit through, as determined by UNCLOS.
