Abstract

The significant number of recent state successions has resulted in an attempted re-engagement with the law of state succession in a different historical and political context, based on the accumulation of state practice over the past two decades. This chapter discusses the forms of territorial change, state succession and municipal legal relations, succession to treaties, succession to responsibility, and membership of international organizations.
