9780198258421: The Termination and Revision of Treaties in the Light of New Customary International Law (Oxford Monographs in International Law)

This highly original and challenging study offers an examination of the tensions which exist between the two most important sources of international law: Treaty and Custom. Through detailed analysis of state practice and key decisions of international tribunals, the author considers the circumstances by which new customary law may abrogate the obligations of a prior treaty, and argues that there is a special category of situations which supports the right of a state to renegotiate a treaty by an appeal to new customary law. Scholarly and thought-provoking, this is an original and, at times, controversial study which will become essential reading for all those interested in the sources of international law and the observance and enforcement of treaty obligations.

From the Back Cover:

This book deals with a central issue of international law: the relationship between two of its sources, treaty and custom. In particular, it examines one aspect of this relationship that has not been satisfactorily covered in the literature, whether new customary law may abrogate or modify prior incompatible treaties. State practice in the Law of Sea and other areas of international law contains a number of examples of treaties that have been terminated or revised on account of new conflicting custom. The author draws on these examples as well as on decisions of international tribunals to argue that although new customary law does not automatically affect prior incompatible treaties, it gives a State, under certain conditions, the unilateral right to call for their termination or revision. This is an original position on a controversial subject that was considered too complex to be included in the Vienna codification of the Law of Treaties. This issue may arise in all areas of international law and is of practical importance to all those involved in the field.
