Chapter Summary

This chapter is a contribution to the Liber Amicorum Lucius Caflisch and deals with some of the rules which are the result of the work of the Negotiating Groups and the Main Committee in which the author participated in Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS III). The Judgment of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), in the North Sea Continental Shelf cases in 1969 eroded the dominance of the median equidistance line in respect of the delimitations of maritime areas between States with opposite or adjacent coasts. As a coastal State in the Adriatic, the SFR of Yugoslavia shared the view of some other coastal States in enclosed seas, that the Convention on the Law of the Sea should include some specific rules for such seas. The chapter discusses some of the vague solutions of the Law of the Sea (LOS) Convention.

Keywords: contiguous zone; International Court of Justice; Law of the Sea (LOS) Convention; Liber Amicorum Lucius Caflisch; UNCLOS III
