International legal implications of the Philippine Treaty Limits on navigational rights in Philipine waters
The Philippine Treaty Limits define the colonial territorial limits of the Philippine Archipelago and impose serious restrictions on navigational rights andfreedoms accorded to ships under the Law of the Sea Convention (LOSC), which the Philippines has signed and ratified. This paper discusses these navigational rights and freedoms and analyses the inconsistencies between the navigational regimes provided for in LOSC and their implementation in various Philippine maritime zones of jurisdiction.
