|Author: ||Menon, P. K.|
A study with great relevance and topicality for a world with a rapidly changing political map: discusses the succession of states to treaties and other obligations/rights, seeking answers to the question, Does a new state succeed to its predecessor's international rights and duties, and, if so, to what extent?
"It would be quite an understatement to merely characterize this theme as 'timely', given the recent explosion in the number of newly independent States and the pervasive concerns with self-determination and decolonization. This well-written publication may well be the primer for developing a deeper understanding of the related tension associated with the so-called 'clean state' doctrine embodied within the 1978 Convention." -- American Society of International Law
