The law of piracy can be regarded as the oldest branch of international law, particularly the law of the sea. While the basic legal stipulations in international law as embodied in the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea remained unchanged for a long time, there are some new developments relating to the change of the law of piracy associated with the resurgence of contemporary piracy in the 1990s and the so-called “anti-terror war” led by the United States after the September 11 event. This paper will address three aspects: the definition of piracy; new international legislation concerning piracy; and recent State practice, all contributing to the development of the international law of piracy.
