Naval Diplomacy and International Law
Languages of publication
This article examines the navy as an instrument of the policy of states in the light of international law and the law of the sea. Although traditionally associated with the term “gunboat diplomacy,” naval diplomacy today is not intended to lead to war, but rather to signal to the allies and rivals one’s political intentions as well as military power. Maritime diplomacy remains a unique and useful tool for governments and their navies, so it continues to be used to advance state interests. While the army and air force are only occasionally used in diplomacy, the navy is exceptionally well equipped to be used for reassurance or coercion.
