Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the impact of the case Denmark v. Norway on maritime delimitation. It suggests that despite the new lease of life given to equidistance by the decision in this case, there are plenty of reasons to suggest that the Court may be continuing to move away from a concept of delimitation based upon coastal geographical characteristics and towards a concept of delimitation that takes greater account of the economic realities of the area. It discusses the court's basis for its decision in this case.

Keywords: Denmark; Norway; maritime delimitation; equidistance; court decision; international law
