Abstract: This thesis argues that tensions related to mobile people and activities, many of them ‘non-state, at sea have been the primary influence on strategies to define and control the spaces of coastal and maritime Sabah, Malaysia over the past two and a half centuries. In doing so it highlights how studies concerning the production of maritime space can be enhanced by making use of concepts, theories and methodological approaches and perspectives from the fields of mobilities and maritime geographies, as well as borderlands studies. Adopting this approach enables a wider and deeper analysis of what it means to be political at sea, and of the politics of the sea and coastal areas, than is usually found in studies of maritime territory. As such, this thesis directly challenges accounts which either downplay or dismiss the significance of human social, cultural and political relationships on and across the seas.
