5. Naval Force in the Exclusive Economic Zone

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses naval forces in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ). There are no corresponding limitations on military activities in the EEZ or high seas. Consequently, coastal states that seek to limit military activities beyond the territorial sea have resorted to a host of legal arguments and interpretations that promote their goal, generally by trying to squeeze military activities into the definition of activities over which the coastal state has some legitimate competence.

Keywords: military activities; exclusive economic zone; UNCLOS; law of the sea
