This article examines the scope and content of the ‘due regard’ obligation with respect to the peaceful and economic uses of the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of a third coastal state, other than fisheries. After exemplifying typical elements of the ‘due regard’ obligation, this paper analyses its scope and content with respect to the peaceful and economic uses of the EEZ, namely, navigation and overflight, the laying of submarine cables and pipelines, and marine scientific research (MSR), that a state may exercise within another state’s EEZ.
