Abstract: From the geographical point of view, the most dramatic result of the Archipelago Concept is the transformation of the fragmented island states of Indonesia and the Philippines into compact states. The change in the geography of SE Asia is also seen in the creation of states with land and sea units; in the case of Indonesia and the Philippines the sea units are larger than the land areas. When the last session of the UNCLOS III session ended at the end of April 1982, the Law of the Sea Convention agreed to endorse the Archipelago Concept. It is encouraging to note that provisions have been made not only to accommodate neighbouring countries but also the powerful maritime nations.-from Author
