Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the three disputes, but its primary focus is on the maritime delimitation between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia. The reasons are threefold: Primarily, the chapter simply builds on that work of author. Second, there appears to be no published work with focus on the maritime delimitation between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia. Indeed, the few authors who have addressed this issue have largely treated it as a minor curiosity in the wider Adriatic Sea delimitation conundrum. Finally, with Croatia having joined the European Union (EU) in 2013, the issue threatens to become a destabilizing factor in Bosnia and Herzegovina's EU aspirations in the same manner that the dispute with Slovenia threatened Croatia's entry. The transformation of the Yugoslav republics' land borders into international frontiers imposed the need to delimit the maritime boundaries between these newly independent States de novo, in accordance with international law.

Keywords: Adriatic sea delimitation conundrum; Bosnia; Croatia; European Union (EU); Herzegovina; international frontiers; Yugoslav republics' land borders
