    Abstract

    On 6 March 2018, Australia and Timor Leste signed the 'Treaty Between Australia and The Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste Establishing Their Maritime Boundaries in The Timor Sea' ('2018 Timor Sea Treaty'). It is a landmark agreement between the two countries and provides a pathway for the final settlement of their continental shelf and exclusive economic zone ('EEZ') maritime boundaries. This is the latest maritime boundary treaty negotiation in the Timor Sea, which has been contested for over 45 years by Australia, Portugal, Indonesia and Timor Leste.
