In this foreword, the writing claims that the major dimensions of the United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) remains a major systematic conflict among diverse national and international perspectives, values, norms, and expectations. The sixth session of UNCLOS has highlighted the highly politicized nature of economics in relations among nations, the growing capacity of developing countries to identify and coalesce around mutually perceived core interests, and the highly confrontational nature of the dialogue between developed and developing states.
