Chapter Summary

This chapter contains some special assessments and conclusions based upon direct involvement over a good number of years with the issue of maritime delimitation. This involvement included the conduct of negotiations for maritime boundary agreements on behalf of British Government in a variety of geographical and political settings, as well as participation in some of the negotiations concerning the question of delimitation during the Third Conference on the Law of the sea and in some preparations of arbitrations. The significance of maritime boundaries in international relations grew in step with expansion of national limits during the second half of the Twentieth century. The Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties on 1969 applies generally to all aspects of boundary treaties, including their conclusion, application and interpretation.
