Abstract: Explores the current marine legal order in East Asia as codified in the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOS Convention). The LOS Convention recognizes the right of coastal states to establish maritime zones under its jurisdiction - the territorial sea of 12 nautical miles (NM), the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of 200 NM, & the continental shelf of 200 NM or more outward from the baselines. However, the LOS Convention has not completely ameliorated the maritime tensions of the past. Countries outside of East Asia have often disrupted the legal order, challenging regional maritime peace & security. The People's Republic of China has experienced incidents with the US, Australia, & Japan, among others, that have raised questions concerning the airspace above the EEZ; foreign military activities with the EEZ during peacetime; the right of hot pursuit, use of force, & exercise of self-defense by a foreign power in the EEZ; & salvage issues. Within the region, the dispute of territories in the South China Sea claimed by five different countries & lack of clear maritime boundary demarcations add to the tensions. Recommendations are made on how to better achieve the rule of law in keeping marine legal order. L. A. Hoffman.
