Blurring the lines: maritime joint development and the cooperative management of ocean resources
The first part of the paper examines the significant extension in coastal State jurisdiction offshore and outlines progress in the delimitation of maritime boundaries worldwide. Some of the problems associated with lack of maritime boundary delimitation and the resultant large zones of overlapping maritime claims are then highlighted. Progress in the cooperative management of ocean resources through maritime joint development zones is then reviewed.
