The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) entered into force in 1994. Meanwhile, it has been ratified by about 160 States, including all the Member States of the EU, and the EU itself. The Convention defines the rights and duties of national States with regard to the use of the seas. UNCLOS consolidates customary international law and various Conventions previously concluded by the international community. This treaty, the most comprehensive ever concluded, is often referred to as 'the constitution for the seas.' In this article-by article commentary, a focus is laid on the interaction between UNCLOS and the European legal order, in such areas as the prevention and the reduction of environmental pollution or the fair distribution of natural resources.

The fact that the Montego Bay Convention has been only ratified by 37 States at present and that it will be some time before the 60 ratifications required by Article 308 are achieved has not prevented states from acting in accordance with the rules drawn up by the Conference. Close on one hundred states have established either exclusive economic zones broadly modelled on Part V or 200-nautical-mile fishery zones and drawn on the principles laid down for exploiting living resources. Although these laws have been formulated unilaterally by states, international custom, since the judgement by the International Court of Justice in the Fisheries Case of 18 December 1951, is derived from concordant national rules. This shift began even before the Conference ended, and has been consolidated since then. Moreover, the régime governing the sea-bed beyond the limits of national jurisdiction defined by Part XI, which was the stumbling block of the Conference, is subject to transitional arrangements on the basis of two resolutions adopted in the Conferences Final Act, one providing for the establishment of a Preparatory Commission and the other on the preliminary activities of pioneer investors. This two-volume work, an earlier edition of which appeared in French, has been written by a team of experts of international renown. It presents an analysis of the Convention with an additional Chapter on the legal régime governing underwater archaeological and historical objects.

The "1994 Rhodes Papers," beginning with a foreword by Sir Robert Y. Jennings, member and former President of the International Court of Justice, offer a collection of contributions dealing with the negotiations and events leading to the entry into force of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. The volume also includes contributions of key participants from the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea, the subsequent work of the Preparatory Commission, and the Secretary-General's consultations adjusting Part XI of the convention. The collection is based on presentations made during the annual seminar of the Center for Oceans Law and Policy (University of Virginia School of Law), held in May 1994, at Rhodes, Greece. Topics include: UN efforts to adjust Part XI and perspectives thereon; legal effects of entry into force for parties and nonparties; consideration of the Convention by the U.S. Senate; and current fisheries issues in relation to the Convention.
