Øystein Røhnebæk Stikbakke's master's thesis will be based on the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and the Svalbard Treaty. The thesis will consist of two main research questions. The first research question is whether the islands of the archipelago of Svalbard are capable of generating maritime zones beyond the territorial sea under UNCLOS Art. 121. The second research question concerns the legal relationship between UNCLOS and the Svalbard Treaty, especially how this could affect the geographic scope of the Svalbard Treaty. The questions will be assessed in light of recent decisions from international courts and tribunals, especially the South China Sea Arbitration from the Permanent Court of Arbitration in 2016
