Abstract:This analysis examines the law of the sea in the context of southern Africa, an issue which infringes directly upon economic and political development. This includes the mining of manganese nodules from the deep seabed beyond the current jurisdiction of any particular state, the rights and duties of coastal states in the two-hundred mile economic zone, and the rights of landlocked and geographically disadvantaged states in the two-hundred mile economic zone. Also examined is the controversy on the continental shelf doctrine and the attempt of developing countries to create a new international economic order. Notes.
