Chapter Summary

The adoption of the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, followed by their wide acceptance by the member States of the international community, was soon to be reckoned as a landmark in the codification of modern International Law. In the same decision of 1980, the ICJ saw it fit to draw attention to the universality of codified diplomatic and consular law, the faithful observance of which was to the ultimate benefit to humankind as a whole. The Court expressed the view that, for the due process of law to be preserved, a defendant must be able to exercise his rights and defend his interests effectively and in full procedural equality with other defendants. The Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACtHR) has lately considered the subject at issue into an yet larger framework, of concern to the international community as a whole.
