 The Problem of State Succession and the Identity of States under International Law   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The point was that, although `a conceptual distinction must be made between succession of States and continuity of States', the problems of succession differ from those of continuity `only to the extent that the legal régime governing the consequences of a change of sovereignty differs from that governing the consequences of a change of government'.
Leaving aside the willingness of a state to comply with the rules of the organization concerned, it cannot necessarily be assumed that decision-making within organizations is made by reference to a discrete set of concepts and principles that are not applicable outside that context.
Whatever general rules of succession develop, the continued emphasis upon some form of consent as the basis of obligation in international law means that it is difficult to dispose of the argument that a new state should not be subject to customary, let alone conventional, obligations to which it has not voluntarily agreed.

 The Cognition of States of Affairs: Reinach's Theory of Judgment   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Reinach's theory implies, in fact, that it is not the act of apprehension which is brought to expression in language, but the state of belief or conviction that is founded thereon.
This negative conviction in a positive state of affairs is to be contrasted, on Reinach's theory, with the case of positive conviction in a negative state of affairs.
Both place the notion of state of affairs at the centre of their philosophies, and both conceive the state of affairs not as an abstract proposition or judgment-content but rather as the ontological correlate of an act of judgment, as that in the world in virtue of which a used sentence is true or false.
