Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines several potential approaches to constructing authority when considering the status of the Territorial Sea of an entity under UN transitional administration. It briefly outlines the context of transitional administration, in East Timor by distinguishing it from that of the contemporaneous UN transitional administration in Kosovo. The analysis then employs the East Timor example as a lens through which to examine three possible options for constructing authority as it relates to the Territorial Sea of UN administered entities. The first two of these options are the sovereignty-based possibilities of residual colonial sovereignty and immediate vestment in the state-in-waiting. The third is an alternative possibility of temporary UN control of the Territorial Sea-designate. The chapter then concludes with a brief analysis of the status of the Territorial Seas of entities under some degree of UN transitional administration, but in non-self-determination contexts.

Keywords: East Timor Context; Territorial Sea; UN transitional administration
