The presence of new sources of energy in the volatile system of the Eastern Mediterranean adds further complications in one of the most densely populated areas of the planet, most diverse in nature, most resplendent in areas of natural beauty and cultural importance, steeped in history and still open to the ever-developing problems of every-day life. This paper attempts to identify and explore the challenges created by the multiplicity of legal rules and regimes applicable in the Eastern Mediterranean area, keeping always in mind the jurisdictional problems arising in the compact environment of the region where everyone and its neighbor are too close for comfort.
