Factors exerting an influence on maritime boundary delimitation

A number of geographical, historical, political, economic, security or other factors may be taken into account during the maritime boundary delimitation process. In a negotiating process, States have wide latitude and flexibility in trying to influence the outcome of the negotiations in favour of their rights and interests by using as many factors as they deem appropriate for the construction of the line or lines they consider equitable and satisfactory. In other words, there is no limit to the factors which States may take into account when negotiating.
