Part II Commentaries to Typical Sofa Rules, 32 Revision

Show Summary Details


This chapter concerns reviews or amendments on international treaties provisions. Art. XVII NATO SOFA contains a provision that foresees a revision, stating that any contracting party may at any time request the revision of any Article of the Agreement. Moreover, this request is to be addressed to the North Atlantic Council. The UN Model SOFA does not provide for any revision. While this may be appropriate due to the fact that peace operations are generally planned for a limited duration, the fact that some of them are of unexpectedly long duration with an obvious need for reviewing and adapting certain rights and responsibilities, would show a need for formal revision clauses in UN SOFAs.
