Chapter 9: Artificial islands in the South China Sea: the legal regime and implications of the Award
This chapter examines the legal regime of artificial islands, as well as installations and structures, in the law of the sea, its treatment in the Final Award of the Arbitral Tribunal in the matter of the South China Sea Arbitration (Philippines v China), and the implications of the Award. The environmental considerations regarding the construction of these artificial islands, and the Tribunal’s criteria for deciding the status of the naturally formed features in the South China Sea, including those on which the artificial islands were constructed, have been considered in earlier chapters and will not be discussed in this chapter.
