Chapter Summary

Jurisdiction, which not only includes the powers to legislate and administer but also the judicial function of deciding and executing those decisions, is by its very nature comprised within sovereignty. The Treaty provisions can be deconstructed according to the following categorisation: Firstly, those provisions that apply to the whole of the River; secondly, those that apply to zones of exclusive jurisdiction of each of the Parties, and thirdly, those that govern zones beyond those of exclusive jurisdiction. The Treaty establishes a zone of exclusive jurisdiction for each of the riparians, which extends from the river banks and is adjacent "to each Party's banks on the river". The common feature of the tasks entrusted to the powers of the Río de la Plata Administrative Commission (CARP) centres on the co-ordination of the activities and initiatives that are carried out on the River.

Keywords: exclusive jurisdiction zones; Río de la Plata Administrative Commission (CARP); riparian states; river banks
