Abstract : This study presents the historical context and economic implication of the undemarcated Arabian Sea boundary between India and Pakistan. Of particular importance is the relationship between this unsettled boundary and the exploitation of petroleum reserves in the continental shelf beneath it. Because Islamabad and New Delhi both adhere to guidelines established by the United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea, the study also summarizes the legal maritime climate that emerged as the conference proceeded with its work through the 1970s.
