Chapter Summary

The fifth Panel introduced a unique format, i.e., a lively debate on the proposition that the Senate should give prompt advice and consent to UNCLOS. It introduces and moderates by Thomas R. Pickering, a former US Under-Secretary of State for Political Affairs. The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO is the organism in the UN system specialized in marine sciences and services. A brief analysis of a number of policy and legal options is undertaken with a view to improving the collection and provision of scientific information and data across the maritime boundaries of the Member States. According to the Convention, all marine scientific research (MSR) in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and on the continental shelf requires the consent of the coastal State.
