In this Article, the author analyzes the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. The author seeks to address whether the Convention adequately addresses the need to establish equity in ocean space between the states, as well as whether the Convention has developed adequate legal regimes to promote the global management of marine resources. He concludes that in certain areas, the Convention does not reflect true compromise but rather vague drafting that masks continued disparate positions among the signing States.
