Chapter Summary

This chapter presents remarks on the legal status of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The legal status of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) was another very contentious issue at the United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea. On this issue there were also strongly held and opposing views. Some coastal States would like the status of the EEZ to approximate the legal status of the territorial sea. Many other states held the view that the rights of the coastal States and EEZ are limited to the exploitation of living and non-living resources and that the water column should be treated much like the high seas.

Keywords: coastal states; exclusive economic zone (EEZ); Law of the Sea; legal status; United Nations Conference
