Zhudro I.S. The sectoral method as the means of equitable delimitation of the seabed of the Arctic Ocean

Published in journal "Law and Politics", 2015-6 in rubric "XXI century International law", pages 817-825.

Resume: The subject of this research is the international legal regime of the seabed of the Arctic Ocean with accent on the significance of the customs in resolving pressing issues of its delimitation. The author examines the precedent of the International Court of Justice on resolution of disputes in demarcation of the continental shelf, as well as the use of the sectoral method (method of meridian lines) in demarcation of the polar territories in the Anglo-Russian Convention of 1825, Alaska Purchase (1867), USSR-USA Maritime Boundary Agreement (1990), and the 2011 agreement on delineation of the aviation and maritime search and rescue regions by the countries of the Arctic Council. The conclusion is made that the current international legal regime of the seabed of the Arctic Ocean, including the custom of sectoral division of the polar territories, would allow Russia to achieve an equitable result in delimitation of the Arctic shelf with the neighboring countries without turning to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf, based on the treaties on delimitation, avoiding disputes, unjustified territorial concessions, and ensure national interests.

Keywords: method of meridian lines, delineation of the Continental Shelf, delimitation of the Continental Shelf, Continental Shelf, International Court of Justice, international customs, Arctic Ocean, international legal regime, Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf, International Seabed Area
