|Title:||ASIL Insights: Shipbreaking and Le Clemenceau Row|
|Description:||This ASIL Insight by Marcos A. Orellana examines the phenomenon of "shipbreaking" and some of the legal issues surrounding the decommissioned French warship Le Clemenceau.
In addition to raising the issue of the need for greater regulation of ship recycling, "the Clemenceau affair relates to several multilateral environmental agreements, such as the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal (Basel Convention) and the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (Stockholm Convention), as well as human rights treaties and the law of the European Union."
