La succession d'États en matière de traités d'investissement
|Authors:||Ouédraogo, Souleymane Yacin|
|Abstract:||This study examines critically an interesting and timely issue, namely, the identification of the legal rules applicable to investment treaties in the event of State succession. The application of the Convention of 1978 has proven to be unsuitable, the jurisprudence uncertain and the doctrine hesitating. This paper draws resources from both general international law and international law of investment to argue that only a connection between the Convention of 1969 and the Convention of 1978 can govern satisfactorily the fate of the consent for arbitration from the predecessor State. The study highlights the explicit or implicit intention of the parties and the distinction between real and personal treaties in order to substantiate the solution provided to the main question. Incidentally it makes considerations on the international responsibility of the State when addressing the issue of the survival clause of investment treaties.|
