Chapter Summary

The invalidity of treaty is established under the present Convention is void. The provisions of a void treaty have no legal force. If acts have nevertheless been performed in reliance on such a treaty: (a) each party may require any other party to establish as far as possible in their mutual relations the position that would have existed if the acts had not been performed; (b) acts performed in good faith before the invalidity was invoked are not rendered unlawful by reason only of the invalidity of the treaty. In the case of the invalidity of a particular state's consent to be bound by a multilateral treaty, the foregoing rules apply in the relations between that state and the parties to the treaty. Article 69 deals with the consequences of a party being released from a treaty's obligations.
