Abstract:

The adoption of a ten-year moratorium on commercial whaling at the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment (UNCHE) in 1972 was one of the watershed events in the history of whaling diplomacy. However, the adoption of the ten-year moratorium was quite unexpected, given the fact that not only government officials in charge of whaling diplomacy in Japan but also those in the United States which was the initiator of the moratorium resolution opposed to the idea of an all-out prohibition of whaling. Moreover, even during the final minutes of the UNCHE, some countries including the United Kingdom had position sympathetic to Japan’s and the moratorium proposal therefore had every chance of being voted down.
The following questions thus arise: Why did the US change its policy in support of the moratorium on all commercial whaling? What kinds of bargaining maneuvers among which players in the US government yielded this action? Why was the resolution adopted by an overwhelming majority? Why did the United Kingdom shift its position? And why did Japan lose in the UHCNE on the moratorium proposal? Although whaling diplomacy has long been an object of study, little is known about the diplomatic bargaining between the member nations and the bureaucratic politics within these governments. We would like to answer the above questions, using archival documents of participating governments.
