Chapter Summary

This article deals with certain aspects of the Law of the Sea regarding islands, delimitation, and dispute Settlement. There is a multitude of issues dealt with in and indeed regulated by UNCLOS III, this veritable constitution of the Oceans. The legal regime of islands, the delimitation of zones of maritime jurisdiction between states the coasts of which are opposite or adjacent, and dispute settlement are distinct topics forming different aspects of the law of the sea. The importance of the rules of international law relating to islands and delimitation has grown considerably because of recent developments and current trends. The Conference evolved out of the pioneering work of the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of the Seabed and the Ocean Floor Beyond the Limits of National Jurisdiction. The topics examined in this article can be satisfactorily dealt with through the application of the three fundamental propositions elaborated.

Keywords:Conference; Cyprus; delimitation; dispute settlement; international law; islands; territorial sea; United Nations
