Law of the sea — UNCLOS (UN Convention on the Law of the Sea) — Exclusive economic zone

This chapter assesses the legal regime for military operations at sea under the UN Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOSC). It considers the rules that apply at the seam between peace and war, and how the provisions of the law of naval warfare interact with the law of the sea. It shows that the adoption of the LOSC did not entirely quell disagreements over the right to conduct military operations in areas under coastal State sovereignty or jurisdiction.
