Award 60ANT

On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the entry into force of the Antarctic Treaty, the Saxony District of DARC e.V. in cooperation with Gianni, I1HYW, is publishing this award.

The Antarctic Treaty is an international agreement that stipulates that the uninhabited Antarctic between 60 and 90 degrees south latitude is reserved exclusively for peaceful use, especially scientific research. The treaty was deliberated by twelve signatory states at the 1959 Antarctic Conference in Washington and entered into force in 1961. It has great political significance because it was the first international treaty after the end of the Second World War to set out the principles of peaceful coexistence between states with different social orders.
