(p.93) II Codification and Decolonization 1950–1974
The Decolonization of International Law

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the process of codification. Topics covered include: the move to codification, the part played by the International Law Commission and the International Law Association, the Waldock Reports, the relationship with the law of treaties, the question of new States, semi-sovereignty, dispositive treaties, and finally the adjustments made at the Vienna Conference. It is shown that those involved in the codification were unable to deal with the problem of succession in a way that did not draw within it questions of identity and status, or conclusions about the relationship between international and municipal law.
