Le droit international et la lutte contre la pollution marine par les déchets de matières plastiques

Abstract : Plastic waste is accumulating and invading the oceans, so that some predictions suggest that the oceans could be home to more plastic waste than fish in the next 30 years or so. In this context, the international instruments traditionally mobilized to combat marine pollution caused by this phenomenon are proving insufficient, both in their implementation and in their content. In order to understand the complexity and global nature of marine pollution by plastic waste, an approach that takes into account all stages of the life cycle of plastics, as well as the accidental and intentional transboundary movements they undergo, is now necessary. Although the international community is progressively integrating this need through existing international instruments and regimes, while considering the possibility and opportunity to adopt a new treaty on the subject, the fight against plastic pollution of the oceans remains a real challenge for international law.
