The Law of the Sea Convention at 16: Its Impact on the 21st Century Agenda

The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea entered into force 16 years ago on November 16, 1994. Since then the Convention has established the norms for the behavior of states at sea, becoming one of the world’s most widely cited and recognized instruments of international law. On the occasion of the 16th anniversary of the Convention, the Stimson Center and the Rule of Law Committee for the Oceans organized an event that looked at the Convention in context of issues of today, the near future and decades ahead. This event was a dialogue with a knowledgeable audience on topics including the South China Sea, the Arctic and Geoengineering.
