Chapter Summary

Ratification shall be effected be deposited of a formal instrument with the Secretary- General of the United Nations who shall inform each signatory and acceding State. Accession shall be effected by the deposit of a formal instrument with the Secretary-General of the United Nations who shall inform each signatory and acceding State. The provisions of Article 11 raised a fundamental issue with regard to parties having the right to consent to be bound to the 1956 Supplementary Convention. This issue must be understood in light of the growing pains of a United Nations Organisation which was premised on universal membership, but was limited in that pursuit both by the Cold War and the hesitancy of the decolonisation process in the 1950s.

Keywords: 1956 Supplementary Convention; consent to be bound; ratification; United Nations
