Is the International Seabed Regime of the LOSC 1982 an Objective Regime Valid Erga Omnes? (Reviewing the Legal Status of Seabed from the Perspective of the Law of Treaties)
The existence of the Area as a place who has a big natural resources potention, becomes the conflict source especially about the exploration rights in that place. UNCLOS III gave the solution to the status of the Area as a Common Heritage of All Mankind that set in the special regulation regime. The born of the regime got the opposition from the United States of America and several countries whose want the Area serve by “first come first serve regime” or the freedom of high seas. The other problem is the special regime can be applied by the states whose not the party of UNCLOS III like United States of America?
