Chapter Summary

The Vienna Convention applies to the effects of a succession of States in respect of State property, archives and debts. For the purposes of the present Convention:(a) "succession of States" means the replacement of one State by another in the responsibility for the international relations of territory; (b) "predecessor State" means the State which has been replaced by another State on the occurrence of a succession of States. The Vienna Convention applies only to the effects of a succession of States occurring in conformity with international law and, in particular, with the principles of international law embodied in the Charter of the United Nations. When part of the territory of a State is transferred by that State to another State, the passing of State property of the predecessor State to the successor State is to be settled by agreement between them.
