Diplomatic Law in a New Millennium

Nelson Iriñiz Casás

Oxford University Press

Dr Iriñiz Casás was thirty-four years old when he participated in the Vienna Conference in 1961 as the representative of Uruguay. Based on his personal experiences, this chapter provides details on the background of the Vienna Conference, both with regard to the key players at Vienna and the problems under debate and with regard to the geopolitical parameters that shaped the climate at that time. The author also offers a reflection on the main difficulties which have emerged since the conclusion of the VCDR and suggests amendments to the convention which would enable the instrument to deal with the challenges which have emerged within the more than fifty years of its existence.

Keywords:   VCDR, Vienna Conference 1961, Cold War, diplomatic relations, negotiations, Travaux Préparatoires
