Volume  6, Number  I of the Korean journal of International and Comparative
Law covers a number of timely international legal subjects including the issue
of Air Defense Identification Zones; the potential role of the UN Secretary-
General in dealing with  climate change; the South China  Sea Arbitration

plan identification, radio identification and other requirements. Failure to
comply  may result in interception or expulsion from the zone. In assessing the
legality ofADIZ, they note that while the objective ofADIZ is not the subject of
