Summary

After the Torrey Canyon tanker disaster off the English coast in 1967, when the UK Government invoked necessity for the purpose of justifying protective conduct that infringed on the rights of another state, the community of states started deliberations on a special emergency treaty regime for maritime casualties that led to the Intervention Convention. This chapter analyses this framework as a prototypical special regime for emergency situations in order to deduct lessons for a possible cyber emergency treaty.
