Author(s): Eddy Pratomo

This article considers the non-substantive aspect of maritime boundaries negotiation. Negotiation is a preferred method to delimit maritime boundaries as it has its own advantage compare to other peaceful method. Negotiators have to go through different stages throughout the negotiation process. Creative approach is required to avoid deadlock, and to push the negotiation forward. In the end, the success of the negotiation depends on good faith, and the readiness of each party to compromise and find agreed solution.
