Vienna Convention on Consular Relations
The Vienna Convention on Consular Relations of 1963 is an international treaty that defines a framework for consular relations between independent countries. A consul normally operates out of an embassy in another country, and performs two functions: protecting in the host country the interests of their countrymen, and furthering the commercial and economic relations between the two countries. While a consul is not a diplomat, they work out of the same premises, and under this treaty they are afforded most of the same privileges, including a variation of diplomatic immunity called consular immunity. The treaty has been ratified by 177 countries. This video is targeted to blind users. Attribution: Article text available under CC-BY-SA Creative Commons image source in video

Dayton treaty for Bosnia is concluded in violation of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties
Prof. Francis A Boyle , the international law professor, is the creator of the lawsuit that resulted in the verdict that genocide has been committed in Srebrenica / Bosnia. He has made an “off-the-head suggestion that would need to be further researched lawyers from BiH before acting on it”. The suggestion came as part of his contribution to the debate regarding proposed next steps for questioning the legality of existence of Dayton constitution and the entity Republic Srpska it has created, given the genocide verdict from the International Court of Justice from 2007. From: Boyle, Francis A Date: 2015-07-05 02:29 To [email protected] Ok. Obviously the Federation and its officials would have standing to lodge a Complaint. They can look into filing a Complaint with the European Court of Justice—not the European Court of Human Rights, which already ruled in favor of Finci and nothing came of it. The High Commissioner there in BIH is also an Agent of the European Union. So that arrangement might give access to the European Court of Justice against Dayton, since the OHR is an EU “institution”--arguably. In addition to the argument on grounds of JUS COGENS they need to argue that since Dayton replaced the RBIH Constitution with the Dayton Constitution in Annex , it was not done in accordance with the RBIH Constitution provisions for amending the RBIH Constitution, but was only treated as a treaty and was therefore invalid also under the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties. There is another article in there that a treaty such as Dayton is invalid if it is concluded in manifest violation of the constitutional law of one of the parties to the treaty. fab. Francis A. Boyle Law Building 504 E. Pennsylvania Ave. Champaign, IL 61820 USA P r e v o d From: Boyle, Francis A Date: 2015-07-05 02:29 To [email protected] Ok. Jasno je da Federacija i njeni zvaničnici mogu nastupiti kao nosioci zahtjeva ( za primjenu presude). Oko toga ( predlagaca ) nema problema. Problem je na kojoj adresi bi takav zahtjev bi rezultirao promjenom stanja. Oni ( predlagaci ) mogu zatražiti izvršenje ( presude) kod Europskog Suda prava --- ne kod Suda za ljudska prava, koji je vec presudio u korist Fincija ( Sejdic/Finci) i ništa se nije desilo nakon toga. Visoki predstavnik u BiH je istovremeno i predstavnik Europske Unije. Ta činjenica daje mogučnost istovemenog pristupa i Euroskom Sudu ( a na osnovu presude UN Suda ) protiv “Daytona” jer je OHR istovemeno i takođe EU institucija. U dodatku argumentaciji po osnovu Jus-Cogens ( neupitna opca obaveza izvršenja presuda) potrebno je da oni ( predlagaci) imaju stav da - pošto je “Dayton” zamijenio Ustav RBiH dejtonskim ustavom u jednom anexu, to nije prema procedurama za izmjene Ustava zapisanim u Ustavu Reublike BiH , odnosno bilo je predstavljeno ( gradjanima RBiH ) kao jedan ugovor - kao takav taj ugovor je ništavan i po osnovu, referentne Bečke konvencije o pravu ugovora. Nisam u uredu sad ali postoji drugi član (Konvencije) po kojem je ugovor kao Dejtonski nevažeci ako je sklopljen povredom važečeg Ustava zemlje strane u pregovorima (Republike BiH). FAB

Treaty Interpretation
BOOK REVIEW TREATY INTERPRETATION Second Edition By Richard Gardiner Oxford University Press The Oxford International Law Library ISBN: 978 0 19966 923 3 www.oup.com FOR INTERNATIONAL LAWYERS: THE DEFINITIVE WORK ON THE INTERPRETATION OF TREATIES -- NOW IN A NEW EDITION An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers As the world ‘global village’ grows progressively smaller, the scope, reach and importance of international law looms correspondingly larger -- hence the need for the international lawyer to be able to interpret treaties in accordance with modern rules. Interestingly enough, interpreting treaties is regarded as an art by many who are expert in this field, including the author of this book, Richard Gardiner. ‘The increasing number and significance of treaties,’ he says, ‘has given added importance to the art of their interpretation.’ Certain critics have referred to this assessment as rather too glib and have asked ‘whether there were any rules for practising that art.’ Yes, asserts the author: ‘there are such rules.’ These are set out in the Vienna Convention of the Law of Treaties signed at Vienna in May 1969, known as ‘The Vienna Rules. ‘Those who would practice the art need to understand the rules,’ says the author, who, as a practising barrister, was a legal adviser at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and a member of the Faculty of Law at University College, London. Now in its second edition, the book sets out to explain the Vienna Rules, giving examples of interpretations reached by applying them. At the same time, no claim is made that the Vienna Rules resolve all the problems of interpretation. However, it is pointed out that the rules of treaty interpretation differ somewhat from typical rules for interpreting legal instruments and legislation within national legal systems. Even more importantly, the rules of treaty interpretation codified in the Vienna Convention are now applicable to virtually all treaties, both internationally and within individual national legal systems, where treaties have an impact on a wide range of matters which now grows ever larger. Published by the Oxford University Press as part of their International Law Library, this fully updated edition features case law from a broad range of jurisdictions and gives an account of the work of the International Law Commission in its relation to interpretative declarations. An impressive work of scholarship regarded as a classic in this field, the book builds its close and minute analysis with the support of references to real-life examples as part of its practical approach. And there are any number of these from the trades union closed shop, to the principle of freedom of speech, to anti-dumping. With its extensive footnoting, numbered paragraphs throughout and astoundingly lengthy and very useful bibliography of some twelve pages, this book also provides tables of cases, treaties and legislation, plus a detailed table of contents and index at the back. As a valuable resource for researchers, academics and diplomats as well as international lawyers, it will certainly be regarded as indispensable for anyone professionally involved in the law of treaty interpretation. The publication date is cited as at 28 February 2015.

What is OUTER SPACE TREATY? What does OUTER SPACE TREATY mean? OUTER SPACE TREATY meaning - OUTER SPACE TREATY definition - OUTER SPACE TREATY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The Outer Space Treaty, formally the Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies, is a treaty that forms the basis of international space law. The treaty was opened for signature in the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union on 27 January 1967, and entered into force on 10 October 1967. As of January 2017, 105 countries are parties to the treaty, while another 24 have signed the treaty but have not completed ratification. In addition, the Republic of China (Taiwan), which is currently only recognized by 20 UN member states, ratified the treaty prior to the United Nations General Assembly's vote to transfer China's seat to the People's Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. The Outer Space Treaty represents the basic legal framework of international space law. Among its principles, it bars states party to the treaty from placing weapons of mass destruction in orbit of Earth, installing them on the Moon or any other celestial body, or otherwise stationing them in outer space. It exclusively limits the use of the Moon and other celestial bodies to peaceful purposes and expressly prohibits their use for testing weapons of any kind, conducting military maneuvers, or establishing military bases, installations, and fortifications (Article IV). However, the Treaty does not prohibit the placement of conventional weapons in orbit and thus some highly destructive attack strategies such as kinetic bombardment are still potentially allowable. The treaty also states that the exploration of outer space shall be done to benefit all countries and that space shall be free for exploration and use by all the States. The treaty explicitly forbids any government from claiming a celestial resource such as the Moon or a planet. Article II of the Treaty states that "outer space, including the Moon and other celestial bodies, is not subject to national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means". However, the State that launches a space object retains jurisdiction and control over that object. The State is also liable for damages caused by their space object. Article 6 of the Outer Space Treaty deals with international responsibility, stating that "the activities of non-governmental entities in outer space, including the Moon and other celestial bodies, shall require authorization and continuing supervision by the appropriate State Party to the Treaty" and that States Parties shall bear international responsibility for national space activities whether carried out by governmental or non-governmental entities. As a result of discussions arising from Project West Ford in 1963, a consultation clause was included in Article 9 of the Outer Space Treaty: "A State Party to the Treaty which has reason to believe that an activity or experiment planned by another State Party in outer space, including the Moon and other celestial bodies, would cause potentially harmful interference with activities in the peaceful exploration and use of outer space, including the Moon and other celestial bodies, may request consultation concerning the activity or experiment."

What is MULTILATERAL TREATY? What does MULTILATERAL TREATY mean? MULTILATERAL TREATY meaning - MULTILATERAL TREATY definition - MULTILATERAL TREATY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ A multilateral treaty is a treaty to which three or more sovereign states are parties. Each party owes the same obligations to all other parties, except to the extent that they have stated reservations. Examples of multilateral treaties include the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, the Geneva Conventions, and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. A bilateral treaty is a treaty between two states. A bilateral treaty may become a multilateral treaty when additional new parties succeed or accede to it. A plurilateral treaty is a special type of multilateral treaty. A plurilateral treaty is a treaty between a limited number of states with a particular interest in the subject of the treaty. The primary difference between a plurilateral treaty and other multilateral treaties is that the availability of reservations is more limited under a plurilateral treaty. Due to the limited nature of a plurilateral treaty, the full cooperation of the parties to the treaty is required in order for the object of the treaty to be met. As a result, reservations to plurilateral treaties are not allowed without the consent of all other parties to the treaty. This principle is codified in international law by article 20(2) of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties: When it appears from the limited number of the negotiating states and the object and purpose of a treaty that the application of the treaty in its entirety between all the parties is an essential condition of the consent of each one to be bound by the treaty, a reservation requires acceptance by all the parties. An example of a plurilateral treaty is the Antarctic Treaty, signed on 1 December 1959.

International treaties and agreements PART 1 | General studies for civils | General knowledge
A treaty under international law is an agreement entered into by sovereign states and international organizations. Treaties are comparable to contracts, in the sense that both are means of willing parties assuming obligations among themselves. In both treaties and contracts, a party to either that fails to live up to their obligations can be held liable under international law. The central principle of treaty law is expressed in the maxim pacta sunt servanda—”pacts must be respected”. Treaties under international law may either be bilateral or unilateral. Multilateral treaties establish the rights and obligations between the parties. Moreover, multilateral treaties are often, but not always regional. Bilateral treaties by contrast are negotiated between a limited number of states, most commonly only two, establishing legal rights and obligations between those two states only. Though on entering into a treaty, the states become generally bound by the terms of the treaty, it is possible to modify, alter or amend treaty obligations. These are possible through Amendments, Protocols and Reservations. Reservations are unilateral statement purporting to exclude or to modify the legal obligation and its effects on the reserving state. These must be included at the time of signing or ratification. In other words, a party cannot add a reservation after it has already joined a treaty. An existing treaty can be amended in three ways. First, formal amendment requires States parties to the treaty to go through the ratification process all over again. The re-negotiation of treaty provisions can be long and protracted, and often some parties to the original treaty will not become parties to the amended treaty. When determining the legal obligations of states, one party to the original treaty and one a party to the amended treaty, the states will only be bound by the terms they both agreed upon. Treaties can also be amended informally by the treaty executive council when the changes are only procedural, technical, or administrative. Finally, a change in customary international law can also amend a treaty, where state behavior evinces a new interpretation of the legal obligations under the treaty. In international law and international relations, a protocol is generally a treaty or international agreement that supplements a previous treaty or international agreement. A protocol can amend the previous treaty, or add additional provisions. Interpretation of a treaty is also a subject of importance under international law. The language of treaties, like that of any law or contract, must be interpreted when the wording does not seem clear or it is not immediately apparent how it should be applied in a perhaps unforeseen circumstance. The Vienna Convention states that treaties are to be interpreted “in good faith” according to the “ordinary meaning given to the terms of the treaty in their context and in the light of its object and purpose.” No one party to a treaty can impose its particular interpretation of the treaty upon the other parties. Consent may be implied, however, if the other parties fail to explicitly disavow that initially unilateral interpretation, particularly if that state has acted upon its view of the treaty without complaint. Consent by all parties to the treaty to a particular interpretation has the legal effect of adding an additional clause to the treaty – this is commonly called an ‘authentic interpretation’. A party to a treaty may also put an end to it either by withdrawal, suspension or termination. While many treaties expressly forbid withdrawal, other treaties are silent on the issue, and so if a state attempts withdrawal through its own unilateral denunciation of the treaty, a determination must be made regarding whether permitting withdrawal is contrary to the original intent of the parties or to the nature of the treaty. If a party has materially violated or breached its treaty obligations, the other parties may invoke this breach as grounds for temporarily suspending their obligations to that party under the treaty. A material breach may also be invoked as grounds for permanently terminating the treaty itself.

What is DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY? What does DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY mean? DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY meaning - DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY definition - DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Diplomatic immunity is a form of legal immunity that ensures diplomats are given safe passage and are considered not susceptible to lawsuit or prosecution under the host country's laws, although they can still be expelled. Modern diplomatic immunity was codified as international law in the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (1961) which has been ratified by all but a handful of nations, though the concept and custom of such immunity have a much longer history dating back thousands of years. Many principles of diplomatic immunity are now considered to be customary law. Diplomatic immunity as an institution developed to allow for the maintenance of government relations, including during periods of difficulties and armed conflict. When receiving diplomats, who formally represent the sovereign, the receiving head of state grants certain privileges and immunities to ensure they may effectively carry out their duties, on the understanding that these are provided on a reciprocal basis. Originally, these privileges and immunities were granted on a bilateral, ad hoc basis, which led to misunderstandings and conflict, pressure on weaker states, and an inability for other states to judge which party was at fault. An international agreement known as the Vienna Conventions codified the rules and agreements, providing standards and privileges to all states. It is possible for the official's home country to waive immunity; this tends to happen only when the individual has committed a serious crime, unconnected with their diplomatic role (as opposed to, say, allegations of spying), or has witnessed such a crime. However, many countries refuse to waive immunity as a matter of course; individuals have no authority to waive their own immunity (except perhaps in cases of defection). Alternatively, the home country may prosecute the individual. If immunity is waived by a government so that a diplomat (or their family members) can be prosecuted, it must be because there is a case to answer and it is in the public interest to prosecute them. For instance, in 2002, a Colombian diplomat in London was prosecuted for manslaughter, once diplomatic immunity was waived by the Colombian government.
