Abstract

This chapter outlines and analyses the competing claims to maritime jurisdiction made in the South China Sea. As the tide suggests, this is not a straightforward task. Indeed, the South China Sea is perhaps the world's most contested maritime space, characterized by complex coastal geography, numerous sovereignty disputes over islands featuring multiple claimants, excessive and controversial claims to baselines, conflicting and overlapping maritime claims to and controversial submissions regarding extended continental shelf rights.
