Abstract

This thesis examines the rules of the international law of the sea governing the delimitation of maritime areas which fall under the sovereignty of States. These areas comprise internal waters, archipelagic waters and the territorial sea. Accordingly, this thesis analyses issues related to: (a) the dehmitation of internal waters behind the normal and/or straight baselines; (b) the dehmitation of single-State bays; (c) the delimitation of multi-State bays; (d) the enclosure of mid-ocean archipelagos; and (e) the dehmitation of the outer limit of the territorial sea.
