Chapter Summary

The provisions of the present convention shall not prejudge any question that may arise in regard to a treaty from a succession of states or from the international responsibility of a state or from the outbreak of hostilities between states. International responsibility is borne by a state for conduct in breach of its international obligations. Such breach constitutes an international wrong from which follow certain legal consequences for the off ending state, the injured state, and in some circumstances for the international community as a whole. The usual reaction to an international wrong is for the injured state to compel the off ending state to fulfil its obligations or to obtain reparation from that state. The term "outbreak of hostilities" would cover all such situations. It appears to relate to situations between states which are severe enough to affect the treaty relations between states.

Keywords: legal consequences; outbreak of hostilities; state responsibility; succession; treaty
