(01.09.2009) In a recently published book, FNI Senior
Research Fellow Davor Vidas explains the legal
and policy aspects of the Croatian-Slovenian maritime delimitation dispute.
This dispute has been an open, and increasingly acute, problem for the
relations between the two countries for the past 18 years.
book, Vidas, who is an expert in international law, has reviewed selected,
emerging issues, including the proclamations of zones of sovereign rights and
jurisdictions, general agreements and obstacles to their implementation, and
implications of EU documents and EU-related regional policy developments for
the delimitation dispute. Special focus of his analysis has been paid to the
Slovenian-claimed 'right to direct territorial exit to the high seas' in light
of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and in respect of practical and
safety regulations for international navigation adopted by the International
Maritime Organisation (IMO) and others.
The book, which is a collection of 14 essays, is entitled
Hrvatsko-slovensko razgranicenje (Croatian-Slovenian Delimitation) and has
been published by the renowned Croatian Skolska Knjiga publishing house. The
book has received considerable attention in Croatia as well as in the
neighbouring countries, and in addition to a press conference and a large
number of reviews and news articles in the media, Vidas was invited to
personally deliver a copy of the book to Croatian President Stjepan
Davor Vidas: Hrvatsko-slovensko
