Chapter Summary

Assessing the role of international dispute settlement institutions in the delimitation of the outer continental shelf makes it necessary to distinguish between three different scenarios namely: First, the establishment by a coastal state of the outer limits of its continental shelf on the basis of the recommendations of the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (Commission), second, the establishment of these limits not being based upon a respective recommendation of the Commission and third, those limits having been established without the coastal State concerned having consulted the Commission at all. The Rules of Procedure of the Commission provide for the possibility of the coastal State concerned only to establish the outer limits of a portion of its continental shelf or for a joint or separate submissions of several states.

Keywords: coastal state; continental shelf (commission); delimitation; dispute settlement mechanisms; international dispute settlement institutions
