This article explores the issues relevant to the delimitation of maritime boundaries between Malaysia, Singapore, and also Indonesia in this area. A brief summary of the case is followed by consideration of the baselines and maritime jurisdictional claims of the parties and the delimitation of maritime boundaries, with particular emphasis on the status and potential role of the islands in this context. Potential maritime boundary delimitation scenarios in the eastern Singapore Strait are then considered and assessed.||Source Title:||Ocean Development and International Law||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/45359||ISSN:||00908320||DOI:||10.1080/00908320802631551|
