Triggered by the Imia crisis in 1996, this collection examines the dispute and contextualizes the relationship between Greece and Turkey in a historical, security and law of the sea framework. Relations between the two countries have been turbulent, frequently triggered by issues of maritime neighbourliness, and the current arms race between the two states is a cause of grave international concern. Part I examines historical and security issues, with contributions on the historical background of Greco-Turkish relations, British perspectives on these relations after the Second World War, the role of NATO, Greece's defence strategy and the balance of power between Greece and Turkey. Part II addresses law of the sea and governance issues, and includes studies on Greece and the law of the sea, maritime boundaries in the Mediterranean, the Imia Rocks crisis, human security and governance, fisheries management, water resources management, joint development zones and dispute settlement in the law of the sea. This book contains essays by experts from Canada, Greece, Israel, Italy and the United States.
