This book provides a complete overview of the jurisprudence on maritime delimitation. Each case is presented under a series of identical headings, so as simultaneously to provide the reader with a complete analysis of the individual case and a uniform measure of comparison with other cases. The headings are as follows: geographical context; submissions and arguments of the parties; specific features of the case; the judgment, broken down into its various elements; individual and dissenting opinions; and academic comment (together with a bibliography). The longest section on each case is that devoted to the judgment. The analysis of each relevant element (the role of third States, equity, equidistance, the displacement of a provisional line, islands, proportionality etc.) is presented in three ways: (1) a brief introductory part introducing, and offering a critique of, the essential features of the relevant part of the decision; (2) relevant extracts from the judgment; (3) commentaries (either brief or more developed, according to the needs of the case), that endeavour to bring out the substance of the judgment, in particular by drawing out the various consequences, making connections with previous and future cases so as to chart the development of the jurisprudence, and offering critical reflections. The book thus presents a complete panorama of the jurisprudential problems associated with maritime delimitation. The clarity and comprehensive nature of the presentation, and the quality of the commentaries, makes it an indispensable reference work for academics and for practitioners alike.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'On lit toujours avec intérêt les analyses de R. Kolb et il ne fait pas de doute que ce gros ouvrage (de près de 1200 pages compte tenu de la juxtaposition des versions francaise et anglaise) constitue un remarquable guide de lecture pour chacune des affaires y évoquées...'
P.M.E., Extrait de l'Annuaire Francais de Droit Internationale, 2004.
'The book collects an impressive amount of materials, including not only the commentaries of the author on the case which are excerpted, but also summaries of some key publications commenting on the case law. All in all, Case Law on Equitable Maritime Delimitation provides a wealth of interesting observations on the development of maritime delimitation law in general and specific points of individual cases. As such, the book can certainly be recommended'.
Alex G. Oude Elferink, Netherlands International Law Review, 2004.
