Chapter Summary

Since the end of the Cold War, problems of State succession have been the object of significant developments. This area of research is vast and complex, and it is undoubtedly also one of the most controversial and disputed areas in international law. The study of the many problems arising from the process of succession of States is usually divided into several different aspects: succession to treaties, to debts, to assets, to archives, to international organisations, etc. The need for a comprehensive survey of the issue of succession of States to international responsibility arises from the fact that this topic has never been the object of any general study by the International Law Commission (I.L.C.) or by any international law scientific institution. The first essential distinction between the different types of succession of States concerns the consequences that an event may have on the predecessor State(s)..

Keywords: Cold War; International Law Commission (I.L.C.); international organisations; international responsibility; predecessor State(s); State succession
