Passage and Military Activities

Passage and Military Activities

(p.24) 2 Passage and Military Activities
Maritime Security and the Law of the Sea

Natalie Klein (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The first half of this chapter addresses the passage of warships with a focus on the exercise of that right in areas over which a coastal state has sovereignty: the territorial sea, straits, and archipelagic waters. It examines the respective rights and duties of the coastal state and the flag state of the naval vessel in relation to innocent passage and transit passage. A further section considers special requirements for submarines and for nuclear-powered or equipped vessels. In the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and on the high seas, the range of permissible military activities beyond passage increases. The second half of the chapter addresses this broader category of activities. Issues surrounding military activities in the EEZ, weapons tests on the high seas, and the peace-time use of security zones are all considered.

Keywords:   warships, innocent passage, transit passage, nuclear-powered vessels, submarines, military activities, weapons tests, security zones
