Abstract

The archipelagic principle which consists of several coastal islands and two archipelagic state in the Southeast Asian region in fighting for the concept of the Archipelagic state Principle, namely Indonesia and the Philippines need to consider not only geographical, but also natural characteristics and in particular historical backgrounds. The Archipelagic State Principle which is fought for by the archipelagic state is essentially the implementation of the principle of a straight line in an island state, although this principle is based on international law only applies to coastal island states. There are doubts about the definition of an archipelago, although there is recognition of the unity of a group of islands, the status of the waters that line within the islands are still unclear. What is clear is that the conception of the archipelagic had become a new problem in the field of International Law of the Sea at the conference on the Codification of the Hague in 1930.

Keywords: archipelagic state principle, straight base lines
