Fair Seas Concordat
« on: August 28, 2017, 08:52:27 PM »
The Fair Seas Concordat is the rules governing territorial sovreignty over the oceans, it also establishes rules of fair passage and navigation. We use the real life United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, a full copy of which can be found here

This is a summary of the document.

* Coastal States exercise sovereignty over their territorial sea which they have the right to establish its breadth up to a limit not to exceed 12 nautical miles; foreign vessels are allowed "innocent passage" through those waters;

* Ships and aircraft of all countries are allowed "transit passage" through straits used for international navigation; States bordering the straits can regulate navigational and other aspects of passage;

* Archipelagic States, made up of a group or groups of closely related islands and interconnecting waters, have sovereignty over a sea area enclosed by straight lines drawn between the outermost points of the islands; the waters between the islands are declared archipelagic waters where States may establish sea lanes and air routes in which all other States enjoy the right of archipelagic passage through such designated sea lanes;

* Coastal States have sovereign rights in a 200-nautical mile exclusive economic zone (EEZ) with respect to natural resources and certain economic activities, and exercise jurisdiction over marine science research and environmental protection;

* All other States have freedom of navigation and overflight in the EEZ, as well as freedom to lay submarine cables and pipelines;

* Coastal States have sovereign rights over the continental shelf (the national area of the seabed) for exploring and exploiting it; the shelf can extend at least 200 nautical miles from the shore, and more under specified circumstances;

* All States enjoy the traditional freedoms of navigation, overflight, scientific research and fishing on the high seas; they are obliged to adopt, or cooperate with other States in adopting, measures to manage and conserve living resources;

* The limits of the territorial sea, the exclusive economic zone and continental shelf of islands are determined in accordance with rules applicable to land territory, but rocks which could not sustain human habitation or economic life of their own would have no economic zone or continental shelf;

* Land-locked States have the right of access to and from the sea and enjoy freedom of transit through the territory of transit States;

* States are bound to prevent and control marine pollution and are liable for damage caused by violation of their international obligations to combat such pollution;

* All marine scientific research in the EEZ and on the continental shelf is subject to the consent of the coastal State, but in most cases they are obliged to grant consent to other States when the research is to be conducted for peaceful purposes and fulfils specified criteria;

Fellow Assembly, Member of the Senate,

It is with pleasure that the Heyran Republic shall acquit itself from ruling over such sensitive matter as those concernings international waters and economical exclusive zone. Regulation being the key, supported by a single tool which is, transparency, would ensure our seas and oceans a respectful cartography when coming to this issue which would hopefully prevent many conflicts from happening. In the past, we relied on tools which had non-sense and certainly no respect for those concerned, as make no mistake, the seas and oceans are a key element to a massive number of living human beings throughout the Mundus, and the definition of clear sets of rules is the only way we may prevent escalation from happening, and make everybody seat at a table and ensure the continuity of our long-living and fruitful prosperity.

This is, with a reiterated national pleasure, but even more, a deeply personal one, that I shall appose my signature on this Concordat.
