Maritime Governance and Control – Rights and Obligations of States in Maritime Safety, Security and Environmental Protection, is a compilation of materials developed over the many years of Jørgen Rasmussen's teaching at the World Maritime University (WMU). It brings together in one volume the author’s insight and expertise on Maritime Governance as well as a range of text from official international documents to provide an overview of existing international conventions, rules and regulations on maritime safety, security and protection of the marine environment.

“This book serves to provide readers – particularly graduate students – with an excellent overview of the International Maritime Organization system of maritime governance. Maritime governance comprises the entire spectrum of IMO instruments covering a wide range of subjects and providing for a comprehensive governance and regulatory framework for the maritime industry. I wish to express my very special thanks to Mr. Rasmussen for sharing his more than 40 years of experience and expertise in the international maritime environment as a maritime governance expert. The Book will benefit the entire maritime industry, including WMU students.” - Dr. Cleopatra Doumbia-Henry, President of WMU.
