    Overview:
    The oceans of the world are becoming increasingly focused upon for global interests emerging from states and wider international economic and political institutional dimensions. Seaborne trade and navigation continue to be the main strategic perspective including the continuing evolving of claims of states to ocean resources. The strategic dimensions of Malaysia are critical here with the nation surrounded by seas in seaborne trade and navigation linked to oceans, such as the Strait of Malacca and the South China Sea.

    In the face of these challenges, emerging ideas on the global institutional participation of states, specifically Malaysia, through international instruments such as UNCLOS 1982 and the wider navigational rules applied through the IMO related to ship operations, will be explored here. These relate to ideas on how states in their sovereign perspective, attempt to give definition to global challenges of seaborne navigation to secure their wider economic interests.
