Abstract

This Editorial Comment introduces the Agora: Military Activities in the EEZ featured in the March 2010 issue of the Chinese Journal of International Law and sketches the debate on the topic. It also highlights some arguments on pivotal issues, including (1) whether the existing framework of Part V of the LOS Convention, as a result of the existence of Article 59 on residual rights, favours the finding of a security interest of the coastal States to which others acting in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) must pay due regard; and (2) whether the need to ensure the safety of the freedom of navigation favours the existence of the right to conduct “pure” oceanographic sea lane mapping by other States in the EEZ of a coastal State that is not prejudicial to the security interest of the coastal State.
