Sea Level Refugees: Suitable Recognition and UNCLOS, is a thesis that seeks to expand multiple definitions, such as statelessness and the term refugee, delineated explicitly by by the United Nations. Furthermore, this thesis analyzes the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and its relevance in the contemporary world; it strongly advocates for the international community to acknowledge and recognize nations at risk of disappearing due to sea level rise, known in this work as "sea level refugees"
