Chapter Summary

The process of maritime delimitation is a relatively new phenomenon. Prior to the possibility for coastal States to claim extended maritime zones in the late fifties, States were only concerned with the delimitation of a relatively narrow territorial sea. The study of what maritime zones an island or rock can generate is important when studying the effect of islands in maritime delimitation. The land, through the coastal front land/sea interface gives realisation to the extent of dominance of that land front as it extends seawards. The Caribbean is a complex combination of mainland and island States surrounding a semi-enclosed sea. The progress of delimiting this area during the last three decades during a time of considerable development within international maritime law is impressive.

Keywords: Caribbean Sea; coastal States; international maritime law; island States; mainland States; maritime delimitation; territorial sea
