Délimitation maritime dans l’océan Indien (Somalie c. Kenya) : l’arrêt sur le fond rendu le 12 octobre 2021”

Maritime Delimitation in the Indian Ocean (Somalia v. Kenya): the judgment on the merits of 12 October 2021”

The judgment of the International Court of Justice delivered on 12 October 2021 settles the substantive issues in the case concerning Maritime Delimitation in the Indian Ocean between Somalia and Kenya. The case was marked by a chaotic final phase of the proceedings, a delayed oral hearing and the non-appearance of Kenya. On the substance, the Court’s judgment remains classic and constitutes an important confirmation of the existing international case law on maritime delimitation, including the question of state responsibility for activities in disputed maritime spaces. Nevertheless, the decision raises some questions and issues, in particular with regard to the concrete application of the delimitation methodology and the delimitation of the portion of the continental shelf beyond the 200 nautical mile limit.

L’arrêt de la Cour internationale de Justice rendu le 12 octobre 2021 tranche les questions de fond dans l’affaire relative à la Délimitation maritime dans l’océan Indien entre la Somalie et le Kenya. L’affaire a été marquée par une fin de procédure chaotique, une procédure orale retardée et la non-comparution du Kenya. Sur le fond, l’arrêt de la Cour reste classique et constitue une confirmation importante de la jurisprudence internationale en matière de délimitation maritime, y compris en ce qui concerne la question de la responsabilité d’un État en raison d’activités menées dans les espaces marins contestés. La décision soulève néanmoins quelques interrogations et problèmes, notamment en ce qui concerne l’application concrète de la méthode de délimitation et la délimitation de la partie du plateau continental au-delà de la limite de 200 milles marins.
