ABSTRACT

This study is to inquire into U.K-France territorial conflict or dispute and agreement between U.K.. and France relating to the delimitation of territorial sea. The arguments for the English Channel(La Manche) and the Streait of Dover(Pas de Calais) are certainly occupied by two countries U.K. and France, as shown by the marine Pliocene deposits far up the Channel on the French coast. So on the reports of IHO, the naming of two borders were called "co-owner" by historic and international factord. At the case of Minquiers et Echros, the judgements of ICJ by Acquisition with Title, Acquisition without Title, relating to islands and rocks may be advantageous to U.K. interests in the western part of the region. Finally the Agreement of the delimitation of territorial sea between U.K.. and France may also assist to some extent in providing a better basis for reaching agreements on unresolved delimitation problems between opposite and adjacent states in the regions. The 1976, 1982, 1988, 2002 Agreements provides quantitative, albeit somewhat complex, formulate to determine the outer limits of the continental shelf and thus solve that particular problem. This states that the problems of ocean space are closely inter-related and need to be considered as a whole. While this is true, the world ocean is too vast and too complex to be treated as a whole for every purpose.
