Video: John Norton Moore on the Law of the Sea TreatyJune 20, 2012 # 3:48 pm # Armed Conflict, Education, Foreign Policy, Human Rights, Intelligence, International Law, International Organizations # No Comment
My friend and mentor, Professor John Norton Moore, appearing on C-SPAN in support of US ratification of the 1982 Convention on the Law of the Sea. Ambassador Moore was Chair of the NSC Inter-Agency Task Force on the Law of the Sea and is the Director of the Center for Oceans Law and Policy at the University of Virginia School of Law. As many, many previous posts (e.g., here, here, and here) have argued, the United States should ratify the Convention. With another round of recent hearings before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, we can only hope that a vote in the full Senate will come soon.
