Background and Objectives

After the world war and the emergence of international organizations in the field of the international system, the world witnessed a change in the arrangement of international actors. One of these international organizations was the International Maritime Organization (IMO). It operates as a specialized agency of the United Nations in the field of maritime affairs and related matters. On the other hand, the Convention on the Law of the Sea, adopted in 1982, is the most important document in the field of the law of the sea that has been ratified so far and plays the role of a reference. This research seeks to analyze and explain the level of relations between emo and the Convention on the Law of the Sea.

Also, the type of emo relations with the Convention on the Law of the Sea is divided into two categories: functional and thematic. In the functional dimension; The Convention on the Law of the Sea identifies Emo as a competent body, the drafter and source of international laws and standards, and ultimately the supporter and facilitator of the implementation of laws and regulations.
