Chapter Summary

The exclusive economic zone was neither the high seas with exceptions in favor of the international community nor a territorial sea with exceptions in favor of the coastal State. The exclusive economic zone was a new marine zone with a sui generis legal substance combining components of the high seas with components of the territorial sea and then legally fusing them together to create a brand new marine zone of the law of the sea. The genesis and development of the Exclusive economic zone may be traced back to Latin America. The exclusive economic zone is the result of a gradual evolution over a period of three decades. A number of principles became a unifying force along this process, culminating with the incorporation of the exclusive economic zone in the 1982 Convention.
