The Decolonization of International Law

State Succession and the Law of Treaties

Matthew Craven

Oxford Monographs in International Law

  • An original analysis linking the continued legal difficulties surrounding State succession with the political backdrop of decolonization
  • Examines recent cases including the break up of the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia and the unifications of Germany and Yemen
  • Provides a critical assessment of the failed attempts to codify the law of state succession, and explores the implications of a new pragmatic framework for the future development of the law
