Chapter Summary

Article 66 is largely self-explanatory and does not appear to give rise to particular difficulties of interpretation. This provision only partly fills the gap the international law commission (ILC) left in Article 65. Thus, it certainly provides for judicial proceedings in that the court has the competence to resolve a dispute on treaties involving jus cogens. The conclusions of the conciliation commission are not binding. Article 66 was most likely inserted into the convention for political purposes, and its practical importance may not be very great, but it was a salutary development that the conference adopted this provision. The conciliation commission may draw the attention of the parties to the dispute to any measures which might facilitate an amicable settlement.
