Indian Ocean maritime claims

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This paper analyses contemporary maritime claims in the Indian Ocean Region. It examines sovereignty disputes around the region, including in the Persian Gulf and Mozambique Channel before moving on to assertions of maritime jurisdiction. These include claims over internal and archipelagic waters, as well as assertions over rights of navigation in territorial waters and beyond to the exclusive economic zone (EEZ). The paper concludes with an examination of recent claims over areas of continental shelf beyond the EEZ and issues in relation to maritime boundary-making in the region.
