Chapter Summary

The Vienna Convention on the Law of International Treaties contains numerous references to time in connection, inter alia, with: a treaty's entry into force; formulation, acceptance and withdrawal of reservations; termination, suspension of or withdrawal; retroactivity or non-retroactivity; obligation not to defeat the object and purpose of a treaty prior to its entry into force. The ongoing process of codification and progressive development of international public law has led to significant achievements in legal protection of human rights both in time of peace and war. The idea of human security has gained currency. International criminal law has emerged as a new branch of public international law. Given new security threats, maintenance and especially the process of restoration of law, order, and justice in the sphere of human rights require much greater efforts and become increasingly costly and time-consuming. But the cost of times of lawlessness human lives is much higher.
