Item description for The Amendment of the Constitutive Instruments of the United Nations And Specialized Agencies (Legal Aspects of International Organization) by Ralph Zacklin...
'The amendment of international treaties raises problems which are closely linked to the issue of stability and development in the international juridical order. The author of the present work successfully relates these problems, which are of crucial importance in all juridical systems, to the more particular problems connected with the constitutions of international organizations of universal scope. As the effectiveness and continuity of international organizations depend to no small extent on their ability to adapt themselves constantly to a rapidly evolving world, the necessary flexibility must be ensured by provisions included in the constitutions of the organizations. The juridical tool used to meet these needs is an amendment clause incorporated in the constitutive instrument.'
The above-mentioned text from the Foreword by Paul Guggenheim written in 1967 is still as valid today in the light of the reform proposals emerging from the work of the High-Level Panel and the Report of the Secretary General 'In Larger Freedom' which are currently the subject of intense negotiations around the Charter of the United Nations, and in particular Articles 108 and 109. This reprinted edition will be of great value to those involved in the reform negotiations as well as to those studying international organizations.
This is an unrevised reprint of the 1968 edition.
