Chapter Summary

This chapter contains personal assessments and conclusions based upon direct involvement over a good number of years with the issue of maritime delimitation. This involvement included the conduct of negotiations for maritime boundary agreements on behalf of the British Government in a variety of geographical and political settings, as well as participation in some of the negotiations concerning the question of delimitation during the Third UN Conference on the Law of the Sea and in some preparations for arbitrations. Maritime boundaries are established either by some form of international agreement or by the decision of a court or tribunal. The maritime legislation applying to the area to be delimited is examined, including the legislation on baselines, the limits of the territorial sea, exclusive economic zone (EEZ) or other maritime zones, and the continental shelf.

Keywords: continental shelf; exclusive economic zone(EEZ); maritime boundary agreement; maritime delimitation; maritime legislation; territorial sea; Third UN Conference; tribunal
