Chapter Summary

The Third UN Conference on the Law of the Sea was unusual in many respects. First, it was unusually long, beginning in 1973 and ending in 1982, a total of nine years. Second, it began even though the preparatory process had failed to produce a basic negotiating text. Finally, the power and influence of a delegate is not necessarily commensurate with the power and influence of the country Satya N. Nandan represents. This chapter examines why he was so effective. First, Satya Nandan has an excellent command of the English language. He has the personality and character of an ideal chairman or facilitator. Satya Nandan was also instrumental in negotiating the agreement on straddling fish stocks and highly migratory species of fish. The chapter concludes by talking about two of Satya's qualities which are partly responsible for his extraordinary achievements.

Keywords: fish stocks; law of the sea; Satya N. Nandan
