The Center for Oceans Law and Policy, University of Virginia School of Law, annually hosts a conference on a topical subject of interest to the global law of the sea community. The twenty-fifth meeting of the Center was co-sponsored by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS), and held in March 2001, at its Hamburg headquarters. The conference theme, Current Marine Environmental Issues and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, featured two days of presentations from many of the world's foremost experts. The published conference proceedings include papers by Satya N. Nandan, Secretary-General, International Seabed Authority; P. Chandrasekhara Rao, President, ITLOS; most of the ITLOS judges; and a number of private practitioners concerned with the marine environment. Topics discussed focused on the past, present, and future dispute settlement activities of ITLOS and the regulatory consequences in Europe as a result of the Erika oil spill on 12 December, 1999. Current Marine Environmental Issues and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea is a significant collection of authoritative commentary, compiled through the cooperation of an academic institution and an international organization specifically dedicated to peaceful settlement of disputes in the world's oceans.

‘The amendment of international treaties raises problems which are closely linked to the issue of stability and development in the international juridical order. The author of the present work successfully relates these problems, which are of crucial importance in all juridical systems, to the more particular problems connected with the constitutions of international organizations of universal scope. As the effectiveness and continuity of international organizations depend to no small extent on their ability to adapt themselves constantly to a rapidly evolving world, the necessary flexibility must be ensured by provisions included in the constitutions of the organizations. The juridical tool used to meet these needs is an amendment clause incorporated in the constitutive instrument.’

The above-mentioned text from the Foreword by Paul Guggenheim written in 1967 is still as valid today in the light of the reform proposals emerging from the work of the High-Level Panel and the Report of the Secretary General ‘In Larger Freedom’ which are currently the subject of intense negotiations around the Charter of the United Nations, and in particular Articles 108 and 109. This reprinted edition will be of great value to those involved in the reform negotiations as well as to those studying international organizations.

Raymond Saner

Success in negotiation is not a matter of chance, but the result of careful planning and specialized skills. Some of these skills are inborn, others need to be learnt. In this book the social scientist and economist Professor Dr. Raymond Saner draws on his long years of experience as a negotiation adviser, teacher, trainer, researcher and university lecturer to show that twothirds of negotiation practice is learnable. Yet very few people are specifically trained in this everyday task. Without sacrificing scientific accuracy, Professor Saner offers a highly readable and fascinating guide to the subject. In so doing, he does not limit himself to the over-simplified tips generally put out on successful bargaining in every imaginable situation. Rather, he treats the different aspects of negotiation practice in a way that is useful to both academics and practitioners, such that the general laws and principles gradually become evident as and of themselves. The aim of this approach is to reveal the essence of negotiation through the experience of both the author and the reader. Such an understanding of the processes involved in negotiation is of far greater practical value than a mere collection of recipes with no discussion of the underlying theory, while the most comprehensive treatment of the theory without reference to its application in practice would be only half the story. Thus, the text is supplemented by a series of illustrative examples and case studies from the business, political, NGO and international organization arenas, plus some seventy figures and tables. With all this, the author has paid considerable attention to writing a text that is both entertaining to read and rigorous in content.
