This second chapter deals with the path to the 2009 Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships. It begins with an introduction to the factual framework of ship recycling with a focus on its occurrence and effects (A.). This part is followed by a section concentrating on the history of the regulation of ship recycling in the course of which central moments of this process are highlighted (B.). The third section gives an overview of key objectives and obligations of the Hong Kong Convention (C.) which will be of some relevance at a later point of this analysis.
