There has long been a tradition that the law of the sea has been grounded in the notion of the freedom of the sea. This freedom has, historically, three underlying principles: a ship of any nation can navigate the oceans freely; the ship’s national state has exclusive dominion over the ship; and no other nation can exercise dominion over that ship. Freedom is thus the guiding principle of the law of the sea, but it is a principle strongly mediated by nationality.
