Reservations to treaties

The purpose of this report is to examine the conditions for validity of reservations to treaties and to propose a series of guidelines which will form the third part of the Guide to Practice, following the first part, devoted to definitions, and the second, which is concerned with the procedure for formulation of reservations and interpretative declarations. In 2006 this part will be supplemented by several draft guidelines regarding the validity of interpretative declarations—which actually pose few problems in this regard.
