Abstract

The legal issues of delimiting outer continental shelves beyond 200 nautical miles in the Arctic Seas are closely associated with the direction of construction of the Arctic regional legal system. The trend of the former has a far-reaching influence over the latter. Therefore, the interpretation of the legal issues in delimiting an outer continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles in the Arctic Seas inevitably involves a prediction of the prospects of the construction of the Arctic regional legal system. It will clearly take a long time to solve the legal issues of delimiting the outer continental shelves beyond 200 nautical miles in the Arctic Seas, whereas the construction of the Arctic regional legal system is helpful to provide a systemic guarantee for promoting cooperation between Arctic States and Non-Arctic States. At the same time as pragmatically recognizing the priority rights of the Arctic States in Arctic affairs, China should enhance the interpretation of the issues of delimiting the outer continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles in the Arctic Seas in light of jurisprudence, as well as the normative participation in the topics for discussion about the construction of the Arctic regional legal system, in order to better promote the win–win cooperation of all parties concerned around the Arctic and to protect China and the vast majority of Non-Arctic States’ legitimate rights and interests in the Arctic Region.
