Several authors in this book have identified and discussed rhe diversity of interpretations of 'security' thus broadening the scope of this volume by encouraging variously focused interpretations. This chapter focuses upon one of the more region-specific, practical definitions identified - maritime security - and examines how investing in safe shipping operations will aid the prevention of marine pollution arising from maritime accidents. It examines how changing regional circumstances have challenged the existing legal framework applying to Antarctic shipping and describes how the Antarctic and other relevant international regimes have responded.
