H. Con. Res. 51, Recognizing The 50Th Anniversary Of The Antarctic Treaty October 8, 2009
Pat Tiberi, R-OH
"This resolution recognizes that the Antarctic Treaty has ensured Antarctica’s peaceful use and the continuance of international harmony for the past half century. Also, it encourages international and interdisciplinary collaboration in the Antarctic Treaty Summit."
Recognizing 50Th Anniversary Of Antarctic Treaty September 30, 2009
Howard Berman, D-CA
"As a result of the treaty, the Antarctic was the first space in which the international community agreed to preclude acts or activities to assert, support or deny a claim to territorial sovereignty. This exclusion led to the peaceful and scientific exploration of the continent without geopolitical competition. In celebration of the 50th anniversary, the Smithsonian Institution will host the Antarctic Treaty Summit between November 30 and December 2 in Washington. This gathering will raise awareness of the treaty’s accomplishments, provide a forum for a broad cross section of civil society to examine lessons learned from the treaty and discuss how they can be applied globally."
