Abstract and Keywords

The 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (VCDR) and the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations form the core of international diplomatic and consular law. To a large extent, the VCDR codified customary rules on bilateral diplomatic relations between States. Meanwhile, its provisions have largely become part of general international law themselves. This article examines: the establishment of diplomatic and consular relations; the diplomatic and consular functions; and the application of privileges, immunities, and inviolability in recent case law.

Keywords: diplomatic relations, consular relations, diplomacy, international law
