Fragmentation of international law: difficulties arising from the diversification and expansion of international law

Following its consideration of a feasibility study that had been undertaken on the topic entitled “Risks ensuing from fragmentation of international law” at its fifty-second session, held in 2000, the Commission decided to include the topic in its long-term programme of work. Two years later, at its fifty-fourth session, in 2002, the Commission included the topic in its programme of work and established a Study Group. It also decided to change the title of the topic to “The fragmentation of international law: difficulties arising from the diversification and expansion of international law”. In addition, the Commission agreed on a number of recommendations, including on a series of studies to be under-taken, commencing with a study by the Chairperson of the Study Group on the question of “The function and scope of the lex specialis rule and the question of ‘self-contained regimes’”.
