Title: Vienna Convention on Succession of States in Respect of State Property, Archives and Debts
Available From: http://untreaty.un.org/ilc/texts/instruments/english/conventions/3_3_1983.pdf
Description: The Convention on Succession of States in Respect of State Property, Archives and Debts while not currently in force is relevant to international law with regard to succession to assets and debts. Accordingly, the primary rule with regard to the allocation of assets, archives and debts in succession situations is that all parties should settle these issues by agreement. The rules of the 1983 Vienna Convention operate only where no such agreement has taken place. Article 8 of the 1983 Convention provides that state property for the purpose of the Convention means “property, rights and interests which, at the date of the succession of states, were, according to the internal law of the predecessor state owned by that state.” This Convention is based upon customary law and therefore many of the provisions of the Convention are reflective of customary law.
