oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - Historical bays

Volume 6, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0010-4051



One of the subjects to be discussed at the proposed Third Law of the Sea Conference which will be held during 1974, is that of historic bays. The lack of unanimity by the international community on the varying interests states in such bays, eg strategic and economic, can be found in the usual causes leading to legal dissension in international law. This article is an attempt to look at state practice, judicial decisions and the opinions of publicists on the issue. It is hoped that by using this approach, some common features which can be welded into an acceptable principle can be put forward.
