Abstract:

On the international scene, developing states with few scientists and little scientific infrastructure seem especially attracted to the position in the debate in the United Nations General Assembly and its Committe on the Peaceful Uses of the Sea-Bed. The less developed states believe that scientific discoveries made by scientists from the more developed states may be used for a variety of selfish and unselfish purposes, at the choice of the discovering nation. Whether correctly or not, the developing often equate scientific exploration of the ocean with the exploration expeditions sponsored by the great European states. Author
