Chapter Summary

The detailed definition of the mandate of the U.N. General Assembly in Chapter IV of the U.N. Charter includes the specific injunction to initiate studies and make recommendations for the purpose of encouraging the progressive development of international law and its codification. The United Nations has been undertaking its Charter charge of codification of international law with the accepted premise that it will not be limited to any mere mechanical restatement of existing law. While the trial and error testing of international and state legal action in the Yugoslav succession crisis of the 1990's has brought certain changes in the international law-in-action on Recognition and State succession.
