Chapter Summary

For the international lawyer, two connected events stand out in 1994: first, the entry into force of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea on 16 November1 and, secondly, the adoption by the General Assembly of the Resolution and Agreement Relating to the Implementation of Part XI of the Convention on 28 July. This chapter reviews the events leading up to the adoption of the Resolution and the Agreement, before assessing the terms of the Resolution and finally those of the Agreement. The origins of the new Agreement can be traced back to the vote in April 1982 on the adoption of the LOS Convention when the United States voted negatively and several industrialised states abstained because of their disagreement with several aspects of Part XI. The Annex to the Agreement is divided into nine sections.
