However, this restrictive approach to reservations was not accepted by the International Court of Justice in the Reservations to the Genocide Convention case.

The report focused on the distinction between reservations and interpretative declarations, the uncertainties of the terminology and the criteria for the distinction between the two categories. The Commission also adopted the commentaries relating to the aforementioned draft guidelines.46, At its fifty-ninth session, in 2007, the Commission had before it the eleventh and twelfth reports of the Special Rapporteur on the formulation and withdrawal of acceptances and objections and on the procedure for acceptances of reservations respectively.47 At the same session, the Commission considered and provisionally adopted draft guidelines 3.1.5 (Incompatibility of a reservation with the object and purpose of the treaty), 3.1.6 (Determination of the object and purpose of the treaty), 3.1.7 (Vague or general reservations), 3.1.8 (Reservations to a provision reflecting a customary norm), 3.1.9 (Reservations contrary to a rule of jus cogens), 3.1.10 (Reservations to provisions relating to non-derogable rights), 3.1.11 (Reservations relating to internal law), 3.1.12 (Reservations to general human rights treaties) and 3.1.13 (Reservations to treaty provisions concerning dispute settlement or the monitoring of the implementation of a treaty).

The Commission noted that draft guidelines 1.3.0, 1.3.0 bis and 1.3.0 ter concerning the distinction between reservations and interpretative declarations were tentatively proposed by the Special Rapporteur for the purpose of determining a series of criteria stemming from the general definitions of reservations and interpretative declarations. On the basis of the report of the Drafting Committee, the Commission further considered and provisionally adopted draft guidelines 2.3.5 (“Widening of the scope of a reservation”), 2.4.9 (“Modification of an interpretative declaration”), 2.4.10 (“Limitation and widening of the scope of a conditional interpretative declaration”), 2.5.12 (“Withdrawal of an interpretative declaration”), and 2.5.13 (“Withdrawal of a conditional interpretative declaration”), with commentaries thereto.40.

States may make reservations to a treaty where the treaty does not prevent doing so and provided that the reservation is not incompatible with the treaty’s object and purpose. 37 Draft guideline 2.3.5 was referred to the Drafting Committee following a vote. (see Analytical Guide). The Commission was able to consider only the first part of the fifth report22 in which the Special Rapporteur proposed the following draft guidelines: 1.1.8 (Reservations formulated under exclusionary clauses), 1.4.6 (Unilateral statements adopted under an optional clause), 1.4.7 (Restrictions contained in unilateral statements adopted under an optional clause), 1.4.8 (Unilateral statements providing for a choice between the provisions of a treaty), 1.7.1 (Alternatives to reservations), 1.7.2 (Different procedures permitting modification of the effects of the provisions of a treaty), 1.7.3 (Restrictive clauses), 1.7.4 ([“Bilateralized reservations”] [Agreements between States having the same object as reservations]) and 1.7.5 (Alternative to interpretative declarations). The General Assembly, in resolution 49/51 of 9 December 1994, again endorsed the decision of the Commission on the understanding reflected above. Reservation to a treaty is given under Article 2(d) of VCLTdefining ‘reservation’ as a unilateral statement, made by a State when signing, ratifying, accepting, approving or acceding to a treaty, whereby it purports to exclude or to modify the legal effect of certain provisions of the treaty in their application to that State. They ensure friendly and peaceful relations of states with one another and are a means by which international organizations take form, regulate and monitor their affairs. Reservations are unilateral statement purporting to exclude or to modify the legal obligation and its effects on the reserving state. 20 See Yearbook of the International Law Commission, 1999, vol.
