Chapter Summary

Maritime security in the East China Sea is an important component of Northeast Asian maritime security, which relates to the overall security of the region. Maritime jurisdiction is an important aspect of maritime security, and disputes in jurisdiction directly affect maritime security. Maritime jurisdictional disputes in Northeast Asian seas include two dimensions of disputes: territorial sovereignty disputes over islands; and disputes over exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and continental shelf delimitation. With the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea entering into force in 1994, Northeast Asian countries have tried to apply those stipulations of the Convention best suited to expand their maritime interests and rights. Japan has delineated unilaterally a "median line" in East China Sea to divide the sea equally with China. This chapter discusses the principles and methods usually adhered to in international maritime delimitation practices.

Keywords: continental shelf delimitation; East China Sea; exclusive economic zone (EEZ); Japan; Law of the Sea; maritime jurisdictional disputes; maritime security
