dc.description.abstractIncreasing interest in the exploitation of the mineral resources of Antarctica, has raised questions about how the minerals should be managed and who should make those decisions. This study investigates these issues by examining the major conflicts over the minerals, the extent of the resource, the possible impacts of any mining and the risks involved in exploitation. The special features of resource management at the International level are investigated. This analysis points to the fact that a lack of clearly defined sovereign jurisdiction In Antarctica means that there is no authoritative and effectively institutionalised procedures for the resolution of conflicts. The process of decision-making is identified as being pivotal in resolving conflicts over mineral use and in determining a good outcome for the minerals. Decision-making within the Antarctic Treaty is faulty and will not resolve problems over the use of the mineral resource. A process involving universal participation in policy making is identified as providing the best framework within which to deal with the minerals issue.en
