Chapter Summary

The preparation of Volume V of International Maritime Boundaries is a good occasion to stand back and assess the developments that have occurred in maritime boundary law and practice since the project was launched in the late 1980s. By 1990, the provisions of the Law of the Sea Convention concerning the ?package? of maximum limits of national jurisdiction, as well as the concept of the executive economic zone (EEZ) articulated in part V of the Convention, had proved acceptable to many states to the point that the various maximum limits and the concept of EEZ all enjoyed the status of the international customary law. Having reviewed the principal developments between 1990 and 2004, it is possible to detect some general tendencies or current trends in the law and practice of maritime boundary- making.

Keywords: executive economic zone (EEZ); international customary law; Law of the Sea Convention; maritime boundary law; maritime boundary- making; national jurisdiction
