In 2006, the pro-whaling group within the International Whaling Commission introduced a programme of "Normalization" in an attempt to address its long held accusation that the Commission is dysfunctional. This paper traces the twin issues of dysfunctionality and normalization; it looks at the progress of the Normalization initiative so far, and assesses its likelihood of success. The paper also briefly examines "Modernization", as an alternative for anti-whaling proponents to Normalization.
