Law of the sea

The United Nations continued in 2002 to promote universal acceptance of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and its two implementing Agreements, on the conservation and management of straddling fish stocks and highly migratory fish stocks and on the privileges and immunities of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. The year marked the twentieth anniversary of the opening for signature of the Convention, to commemorate which the General Assembly, at its fifty-seventh session, devoted two days of plenary meetings, on 9 and 10 December, to consideration of the item “Oceans and the law of the sea” and the theme “The Dynamism of the Convention: challenges for the present and solutions for the future”.
