Prospects for Joint Resource Development: The Case of the Aegean Sea

  • Nicholas P. Katsepontes
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


The dispute between Greece and Turkey over territorial and economic rights in the Aegean Sea poses tremendous difficulties from the perspective of international law and diplomacy. The dispute also provides the opportunity for creative approaches to addressing the problems. In part, this may mean avoiding linking the solution of the Aegean dispute to other bilateral issues. Alternatively, the resolution of the Aegean dispute may create a model or basis from which to address other outstanding issues between the two countries.
