International Organizations and the Law of the Sea 1994
Now in its 10th year, the NILOS Documentary Yearbook provides the reader with an excellent collection of documents related to ocean affairs and the law of the sea, issued each year by organizations, organs and bodies of the United Nations system.
Documents of the UN General Assembly, ECOSOC and its regional Commissions, the UN Secretary-General's Informal Consultations, PrepCom ISA/ITLOS, UNCED, UNEP and UNCTAD are included first, followed by the documents of specialized agencies and other autonomous organizations of the UN system, including FAO, IAEA, ILO, IMO, UNESCO/IOC and WMO. As in the previous volumes, documents which were issued in the course of 1994 are reproduced, while other relevant documents are listed.
The NILOS Documentary Yearbook has proved to be of invaluable assistance in facilitating access by the community of scholars and practitioners in ocean affairs and the law of the sea to essential documentation. The entry of the 1992 UN Law of the Sea Convention into force on 16th November 1994 and progress in the implementation of Chapter 17 of Agenda 21, make continuation of this assistance of particular significance in the years to come.
