Legally Binding Agreements Of Treaties

121 With regard to the unification of states, the dissolution of a state and the separation of a part of a state, the VCSS-T generally applies a principle of automatic treaty continuity, i.e. contracts that remain in force for the territory on which the succession applies, with the successor state becoming a party to the treaty. This provision did not reflect a rule of customary international law or even a state practice. However, it reflected a growing increase in the unmobilization of contracts. On the other hand, contrary to American constitutional law, Paris will not achieve with the same certainty a “treaty”. Indecentously breaks down international law as “treaties,” the U.S. Constitution is subdivided into “treaties,” “executive agreement of Congress” and “presidential agreement” based on the specific content of an agreement and those who can accept it in the United States, or 2/3 of the U.S. Senate, a simple majority in both houses of Congress, the U.S. president acting alone. Getting a 2/3 majority in favor of a climate change treaty in the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate is science fiction.

Therefore, if you ask John Kerry, Paris will “definitely not” be a contract. For others, it would be counterproductive to insist that Paris is also a treaty in this sense of American constitutional law. 33 conferences have their own internal rules (conferences and congresses, international). Article 9, paragraph 2 of the VCLT defines a standard rule that an agreement can normally be adopted at an international conference by a two-thirds majority. The classic rule was that of unanimity, which proved to be a stumbling block in the adoption of multilateral treaties. However, the two-thirds majority rule may lead to the interests of minorities not being taken into account. An alternative practice has developed, where the text of a treaty can be adopted by mutual agreement, i.e. without consultation and in the absence of formal objection to follow this approach. This has a significant impact on the format of conference consultations. 104 It is sometimes claimed that the registration of an instrument under Article 102 of the United Nations Charter indicates that it is an international treaty. However, this is not a reliable indicator, since the United Nations secretariat, on the one hand, records almost all the documents submitted to it, including unilateral declarations, and that, on the other hand, not all contracts are registered. This is also the view of the ICJ in the case between Qatar and Bahrain: in 1994, when non-registration was not determinative of the character of the document in question (situation 122).

8 With regard to the content of contracts, it is sometimes made the distinction between so-called “legislative” or “normative” contracts and “contractual” or “reciprocal” or “synallagmatic” contracts (once these two categories of contracts have often been referred to as treaties-laws and treaties-treaties). Prescriptive or contractual contracts are seen as promoting community interests by establishing international standards that are better achieved by universal participation and not based on the principle of reciprocity. These standards have been described as created by the ILC Special Rapporteur, Mr Pellet, in particular to establish a common international regulation based on common values (Report of the Commission on International Legislation “Labour Coverage of the Committee on International Health” (6 May-26 July 1996) GAOR 51st session Supp 10, 81).
