Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the regime of the exclusive economic zone (EEZ). Military activities in an EEZ were a controversial issue at the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS III) and remain so in State practice. The chapter also talks about categories of international straits excluded from the transit passage regime under part III of UNCLOS. It further deals with the outer continental shelf: background and current developments. The chapter further focuses on the effect of artisanal fishing on maritime boundary delimitation. One of the innovations of the UNCLOS Convention is that maritime spaces that had been the subject from time immemorial to the customary and later codified high seas regime of freedom of fishing henceforth fall within the EEZ or possible archipelagic waters of a State.

Keywords: exclusive economic zone (EEZ); international straits; maritime boundary delimitation; outer continental shelf; UNCLOS III
