Is there a danger of further fragmentation of international law if human rights treaties were to be treated differently as concerns the reservations' regime applicable to these treaties? Should the distinction be made between the validity of a reservation and the effects of a reservation found to be invalid? These and other questions continue to generate a variety of answers.
