This chapter examines some areas of continuity and change with respect to resource entitlement in the law of the sea. It suggests that one of the main factors which prompted the deliberations at the third United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS III) was the broad perception that the Law of the Sea which had emerged from the Geneva Conferences of 1958 did not adequately reflect the views of the countries which had gained independence as part of the process of decolonization. The perception of bias in favour of developed countries applied with even greater force to rules on resource entitlement.
