A comprehensive study of transfer of technology for deep sea-bed mining under the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention and the controversies that have arisen about it. The book also discusses transfer of technology in international law in general and examines developments since the adoption of the 1982 Convention. These include national mining legislations of industrialized countries, extensive work by the Preparatory Commission for the establishment of the International Sea-Bed Authority and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, and the new compromise Agreement relating to the deep sea-bed mining regime adopted by the General Assembly on 28 July, 1994. The book appears at the time when the Convention enters into force (16 November 1994).
It will be of interest to academic lawyers and economists with an interest in the deep sea-bed mining issue, as well as to all those in the sea-bed mining industry, in public service (governmental and inter-governmental) and in UN organizations, who are likely to get involved in deep sea-bed mining and/or transfer of technology issues.
