United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS): Should Conservatives Support or Oppose Ratification?

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

President Bush has re-issued his request that the Senate give its advice and consent to the United States' ratification of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.  Conservatives have effectively prevented Senate consideration of UNCLOS in the past.  Given the Administration's renewed request, the question is whether conservatives should continue to oppose ratification.

Join our distinguished panelists as they attempt to answer this timely and important question.
