The sessions will explore some of critical contributions of the Antarctic Treaty System to global science, examine its remarkable levels of international co-operation at all levels and discuss some of its challenges for the future.

Day 3
These sessions will explore the interplay of the Antarctic Treaty and other international institutions that are being adopted to manage human activities on a planetary scale, consider the lessons from the Antarctic Treaty, and recognize the importance of science in providing a sound basis for managing our future.
