This chapter is a tribute to Fausto Pocar, an exceptional professor of law, a very successful Vice-Rector of the University of Milan, a respected leader at the United Nations Committee on Human Rights, and a competent judge at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. Aside from his knowledge of the applicable international law, Pocar also had a great experience of the United Nations system generally. As Committee chairman, and faced with the plight of millions of people in the disintegrating Yugoslavia, Pocar articulated the doctrine of automatic succession to certain human rights treaties. Pocar has in the past served his country at many conferences and meetings on private international law and delivered a lecture at the Hague Academy of International Law on ‘La protection de la partie faible en droit international privé’ in 1984. He is also thoroughly versed in European law.
