Chapter Summary

The 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) represents one of the pinnacles of international law-making during the 20th century. Most aspects of the 1982 Convention are interrelated and form an integral package. The normative ideal that all aspects of ocean space are interrelated and should be treated as an integral whole was embedded in the work of the 3rd United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea. This chapter argues that the 1982 Convention provides a viable framework where rights and duties must go hand in hand if the legal scheme is to achieve a just and equitable international economic order taking into account the interests of all States and the international community as a whole. In other words, States claiming rights under the Convention must assume correlative duties if the normative scheme is to work in practice.
