Colloque

Pacific and Military Uses of the Exclusive Economic Zone : Exploring Coastal and Non-Coastal States’ Obligation to Have “Due Regard” to Rights and Duties of Other States in the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea

lundi 29 janvier 2018

Présentation

 

“Due regard” obligations have been formalized especially in articles 56(2) and 58(3) of the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), both relating to the exclusive economic zone. They have long remained dormant, but were recently reactivated by international practice in the 2016 South China Sea case (Philippines v. China). The Workshop aims at clarifying these “due regard” obligations, their nature and the conditions of their application, as well as the consequences of their violation. First, it will focus on their execution in relation to the exercise of UNCLOS rights (fishing, navigation, laying of submarine cables and pipelines, scientific research).
Second, the emphasis will be put on military activities of non-coastal States, such as the launch of ballistic missiles or the test of nuclear materials, into or nearby the exclusive economic zone of another State. Based on the analysis of international case law as well as State practice, our discussions will gather academics’ and practitioners’ expertise in the fields of public international law, international law of the sea, and law of international security.
