Chapter Summary

The corruption of a State representative perverts the relationship of agency between the representative and the State on behalf of which he or she is authorized to act. Article 50 does not define corruption. Generally, it can be said that corruption refers to the misuse of a public office or a position of trust - in the context of Article 50 by the representative of a State involved in the conclusion of a treaty - for personal gain. Corruption relates to a State's consent to be bound by a treaty. Article 50 does not intend to cast doubt on the integrity of representatives but to serve as both a warning and a moral imperative. Inclusion of Article 50 in Part V of the Convention confirms that the validity of a treaty on the ground of corruption may be impeached solely through the application of the Convention.
