Following the Example of Israel and Lebanon: Resolving Maritime Border Disputes in the Eastern Mediterranean
The recent US-brokered agreement to delimit Lebanon's EEZ with Israel has created a new diplomatic and energy reality in the dynamically developing eastern Mediterranean region. This policy brief analyzes the new agreement both in terms of relations between the two states and the diplomatic and energy realities it creates in the region. Considering the political reality that Israel and Lebanon have so far seen as states without diplomatic relations, this policy brief concludes with a series of policy proposals to make the agreement an opportunity for de-escalation and a space of cooperation for the states involved, especially in the quest for energy security.
