The Continental Shelf Beyond 200 Nautical Miles examines the nature of the rights and obligations of coastal States in this area, with a particular focus on the options for regulating activities on the extended continental shelf.

The book discusses the development of the concept of the extended continental shelf, and explores a range of issues facing the coastal State in regulating matters – such as environmental protection, fishing, bioprospecting, exploitation of non-living resources and marine scientific research on the extended continental shelf. It proposes a framework for navigating the intersection between the high seas and the extended continental shelf and minimising the potential for conflict between flag and coastal States.
