Exclusive economic zone - the concept of suis generis area and its implications for the legal order of the seas


  • Adascalitei Oana

    (Constanta Maritime University Romania)


The Exclusive Economic Zone combines features of the high seas and the territorial sea which gives it a unique character among other maritime territories regulated by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. Finding a balance between coastal State and third states rights, reflects the very legal nature of this suis generis area as it is recognised by the international law. The article aims at analysing the provisions of the Convention in an attempt to understand the actual tendency to disrupt the legal order in this area
