Chapter Summary

The Adriatic Sea can be considered as a semi-enclosed sea located within a bigger semi-enclosed sea (the Mediterranean). Two delimitations relate to the territorial sea, namely Italy, Yugoslavia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and two to the continental shelf, namely Italy, Yugoslavia and Albania, Italy. The Maritime Code of Croatia, adopted on 27 January 1994, includes several provisions on the exclusive economic zone. These provisions will become applicable when the Croatian Parliament takes the decision to proclaim such a zone. The Croatian zone is considered as a quasi-exclusive economic zone. The provisional nature of the limits set forth by Croatia under the 2003 Decision, the one-year period of postponed implementation and the readiness to submit the question to an international judicial body are all elements that show the spirit of co-operation of Croatia in order to reach an agreement on its maritime boundary.

Keywords: Adriatic Sea; continental shelf; Croatian zone; international judicial body; maritime code; maritime delimitation; quasi-exclusive economic zone; territorial sea
