‘INTERNATIONAL MARITIME BOUNDARIES: AN EVALUATION OF THE RELEVANT PROVISIONS OF THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON THE LAW OF THE SEA (1982) (A CASE STUDY OF THE NORTHERN ADRIATIC SEA)’
Ana Skara
Introduction
The concept of the border is not only a legal issue but rather a complex phenomenon. Borders can have political, historical, ethical, geographic, psychological and anthropological implications and connotations. In this study the term boundary will be used as it is the practice of the majority of legal documents referring to the maritime law. After the integration processes in the European Union, the borders issue has also been at the forefront of the EU debate (internal/external borders). The EU’s expansion to Eastern Europe has significant theoretical and policy implications. The main objectives of this PhD project proposal are to evaluate boundary delimitations on the northern Adriatic Sea. The present day solutions are not able to adequately resolve legal disputes currently existing.

The problem is approached from both a theoretical and practical point of view, in particular, in analyzing not only the more well-known controversies in delimitation solved by international agreements/Conventions, but also still unsettled disputes in which Croatia and Slovenia are involved. Namely, Slovenia, for a long time, has refused the offer to arbitrate, hoping that international pressure on Croatia will lead to its ratification of the agreement. It seems that the lack of harmonization leaves a gap and creates uncertainty that is exploited by individual, national interests. The current stance of the Kosor-Pahor agreement is arbitration. However, that agreement received quite harsh criticism by political opposition parties in Slovenia.
The results of the analysis of this case study will be compared with the negotiations and the Treaty (15 September 2010) between the Kingdom of Norway and the Russian Federation in order to find similarities and differences and to...
