Chapter Summary

In this concluding chapter, the author presents two particular themes. The first is the repeated emphasis on a few dominant interests. The author describes these interests as interests as security, health and environmental protection. The other common theme is the existence of certain synergies. Some of the synergies may unite all three objectives. An obvious example relates to security. The chapter addresses the question of transport of reprocessed nuclear fuel and the problem posed by the threats of environmental damage associated with such transport. There is always a risk in dealing with ocean issues in a venue where many government representatives and the secretariat have little experience with the oceans. Evocation of abstract principle by politicians and their academic tutors cannot, in the absence of adequate research and debate, yield solutions to the difficult questions posed that are of the quality and durability one desires.

Keywords: environmental protection; nuclear age; ocean transport activities
