Now in its 18th year, the NILOS Documentary Yearbook provides the reader
with an excellent collection of documents related to ocean affairs and the
law of the sea, issued each year by organizations, organs and bodies of the
United Nations system. Documents of the UN General Assembly and Security
Council, Meeting of States Parties to the UN Law of the Sea Convention,
CLCS, ISBA, ITLOS, Follow-ups to the UN Fish Stocks and Small Island States
Conferences, WSSD, ECOSOC, UNEP and UNCTAD are reproduced first, followed by
the documents of FAO, IAEA, IMO and UNESCO/IOC.
As in the previous volumes, documents which were issued in the course of
2002 are reproduced while other relevant documents are listed.
The NILOS Documentary Yearbook has proved to be of invaluable assistance in
facilitating access of the international community of scholars and
practitioners in ocean affairs and the law of the sea to essential
documentation. The entry of the 1982 UN Law of the Sea Convention into force
in 1994 and of the Part XI Agreement in 1996, as well as of the UN Fish
Stocks Agreement in 2001, coupled with the ongoing follow-up to review of the UNCED Agenda 21 by the 2002 Johannesburg World Summit, make continuation of this assistance of
particular significance in the years to come.
The members of the Yearbook's Advisory Board are: Judges Abdul Koroma and
Shigeru Oda of the ICJ, UNDOALOS Director Dr. Vladimir Golitsyn, ITLOS
President Dolliver Nelson and Judges Thomas Mensah and Tullio Treves, as
well as Rosalie Balkin, Edward Brown, Bernard Oxman and Shabtai Rosenne.
