As scholars we are unified by a drive not only to make sense of the world around us, but a desire to push the boundaries of that knowledge. To develop new ways of thinking. To apply existing understanding to novel situations. To advance new possibilities. In our own way, we are pioneers, forging new intellectual pathways into new frontiers. Each article or book published is a claim to new knowledge and understanding, a stake in the future content of our intellectual discipline. Each one marks out the territory of the unknown, it brings light to darkness, and serves to advance the rule of law as a catalyst
for environmental, social, economic and in some instances political change. The present collection of essays explicitly situates itself at the frontiers of scholarship on law of the sea and climate change. Some scholarship does this explicitly. Some does this implicitly. However, scholarship infrequently reflects specifically on the idea of a frontier. How does the notion of a frontier define, challenge or influence what we do, and how do we in turn influence the idea of a frontier— or frontiers? This is the task of this collection— to explore the idea of frontiers in the law of the sea and climate change.
