INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL FOR THE EXPLORATION OF THE SEA: Copenhagen
49T HSATUTOAI OESING
Baground: The Council developed from a group of fishery scien-
tists studying the fish stocks in the North Sea. They first met
around 1900, considering strictly scientific matters. Eventually,
as the various countries' fisheries increased in intensity and the
need for scientific management became evident, the Council organized
in" a formal fashion and set up specific committees by subject matter
or area. Its main functions are to encourage investigations in marine
science and to coordinate operations to this end of participating
governments. Its area of operations may be roughly defined as the
eastern North Atlantic Ocean and contiguous or adjacent seas, includ-
ing Greenlandic and Icelandic waters.
Membership: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Gemany, Iceland,
Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden,
the United Kingdom, and the U.S.S.R. The United States is not a
member but usually sends an official observer to the annual meeting.

PAHO XII NESING OF DIRECTING COUNCIL, XII MEETING OF REGIONAL Washington
C ETS OF WHO FOR THE AERICAB, AND J.TH SESSION OF THE
-XCTV C M nT
Background: PAHO had its origin in a resolution adopted at the
Second International Conference of American States 1901-02, which
recommended the convening of periodic public health conferences
of the American Republics and the creation of a permanent inter-
national sanitary bureau in Washington. In 19i7 the name "Pan
American Sanitary Organization" was adopted when a reorganization
plan was approved. At this time the Organization was designated
to serve as the regional office of the World Health Organization
in the Western Hemisphere, and in 1958 the Organization's name was
again changed to the "Pan American Health Organization" to reflect
more accurately the activities and purposes of the Organization.
The functions and objectives of the Organization include a continu-
ing attack on disease at its sources, reduction or elimination of
the necessity of costly quarantines, and the stimulation and sup-
port of national health authorities in the Americas in their efforts
to control disease. The Organization is governed by an executive
committee composed of seven members which are elected by the Direct-
ing Council or the Conference when it convenes. A general conference
of the entire membership is held every four years.
Membership: the 21 American Republics.
Agenda: The principal items to be considered by the meetings include
a revision of the Organization's basic documents; program and budget
for 1962-63; general program of work of PAHO/WHO for 1962-65; dis-
cussion of the methods of evaluation of the contribution of health
programs to economic development; and malaria eradication in the
Western Hemisphere.

UNESCO DIPLOMATIC CONFERENCE ON THE INTERNATIONAL PROTECTION OF Rome
PERFORMERS, PRODUCERS OF PHONOGRAMS, AND BROADCASTERS
Background: The Conference will be convened by the ILO, UNESCO,
and the International Union for the Protection of Literary and
Artistic Works (Berne Union). The Conference will consider a
draft International Convention on the Protection of Performers,
Producers of Phonograms and Broadcasters, drawn up and adopted
by a Committee of Experts, Jointly convened by the aforementioned
intergovernmental organizations at the Hague, May 9-20, 1960.
The major aspects of the draft convention are as follows: The
basic principle of the convention is national treatment in that
each contracting state is to grant the same protection to perform-
ances, phonograph records, and broadcasts originating in its own
territory. In addition to guaranteeing national treatment, the
convention would obligate each contracting state to grant certain
minimum rights to each of the protected groups. For example, per-
formers would be guaranteed, among other things, protection against
the unauthorized recording and broadcasting of their live perform-
ances; record manufacturers would be guaranteed protection against
unauthorized copying of their records; and broadcasting organizations
would be guaranteed protection, among other things, against re-broadcast
of their programs.
Participation: 100 states.
