This note argues that the continental shelf between Greece and Turkey should be delimited under general principles of international law. Part I discusses the present dispute and its historical underpinnings. Part II examines the relevant treaty and customary international law applicable to continental shelf delimitations. Part III analyzes the positions of the parties and proposes a solution under principles of customary international law. This Note concludes that the continental shelf should be delimited by drawing a median line between the two states giving half effect to Eastern Islands and then adjusting the line to avoid enclaving them.
