Chapter Summary

In 1954 the Organization of American States (OAS) took its first step to update the multilateral rules on extradition within the Inter-American System. This chapter presents a survey of the steps taken and work accomplished from 1954 to 1981 by organs of the OAS in the field of extradition. The Tenth Inter-American Conference was held in Caracas, Venezuela, March 1-28, 1954, and adopted two conventions on asylum, which is a matter of special interest to Latin American countries: The Convention on Diplomatic Asylum and the Convention on Territorial Asylum. On February 27, 1967, a Protocol of Amendment to the Charter of the OAS was adopted by the Third Special Inter-American Conference held in Buenos Aires. The Protocol of Buenos Aires entered into force on February 27, 1970, and there was a need to adapt the OAS to the new structure approved by the Protocol.
