Chapter Summary

On November 6, 2001, the Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage (CPUCH) was signed in Paris during the General Conference of UNESCO. The CPUCH may be seen as a reasonable defense against the results of the contradictory and counter-productive regime of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). The basic defensive tools are three: the elimination of the undesirable effects of the law of salvage and finds; the exclusion of a "first come, first served" approach for the heritage found on the continental shelf; and the strengthening of regional cooperation.
