As the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf established under the 1982 Convention on the Law of the Sea has begun its deliberations on an increasingly large number of submissions made by States seeking to establish the outer limits of their continental shelf, concerns have been expressed as to the nature and scope of the work of the Commission, as well as the challenges currently faced by this body set up under the Convention. It is in this context that the present article aims to address questions such as: how and to whom this body is accountable; how transparent its decision-making processes are; what powers it has; whether it is sufficiently well equipped to take such far-reaching decisions, and the implications its recommendations will have for coastal States, for the law of the sea, and for the wider issues concerning the international governance of the seas and oceans. In doing so, this article suggests some ways and means of addressing the challenges facing the Commission.
