Abstract

The re-election of President Obama in November 2012 once again raises the tantalising possibility that the United States (US) will finally become a party to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).1 The question is, following many dashed hopes in the past, will the US finally 'join the party' and, in common with the vast majority of the international community, subscribe to UNCLOS?
