This chapter highlights Austrian contributions to the codification of international law. It deals with the personal contributions Austrian scholars have made to the codification process, either as members of the ILC, as office holders at the codification conferences, or as academics. This chapter also examines the contribution of the Austrian State, with special focus on the major codification conferences held in Vienna: the Conferences on Diplomatic and Consular Relations; the Conferences on the Law of Treaties between States, on State Succession and on Treaties between States and International Organizations and between International Organizations. It is shown that Austria made significant contributions to the codification of international law, especially in the ‘golden era of codification’ in the 1960s.
