Carmen Gina ACHIMESCU, Assistant Lecturer, Faculty of Law, University of Bucharest, Regulation of Whaling within Antarctic Ocean
The dispute is related to the interpretation of the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling signed in 1946. The specific object and the purpose of the Con¬ven¬tion – the protection of different species of whales, led the International Court of Justice to a very strict interpretation of cases when whales’ protection can be limited.

Key-words: commercial whaling, interdiction, special whaling permits, scientific research, evidence, scientific purpose of whaling programme
