    The impact of the internet era on diplomatic The impact of the internet era on diplomatic Presentation Transcript

    • Diplomatic privileges and immunities in the Internet era [email_address]
    • Screening of the diplomatic bag
      • Relevant instruments/concept of inviolability:
      • Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations 1961. Art. 27.3. „ The diplomatic bag shall not be opened or detained ”
      • Art. 27.2. „ The official correspondence of the mission shall be inviolable .”
    • Screening of the diplomatic bag
      • Status of the diplomatic courier and the diplomatic bag Art. 28. and relevant ILC Commentaries: expands the concept of inviolability with the prohibition of using X-RAY devices
      • 300/2008/EC regulation on civil aviation security provides no exception from screening (ambiguities are being handled by COJUR recently)
    • Diplomatic wireless
      • Relevant instruments:
      • VCDR draft Art. 25.1. ILC Commentaries (1958): „If a mission wishes to make use of its own wireless transmitter it must, in accordance with the international conventions on telecommunications , apply to the receiving State for special permission.”
    • Diplomatic wireless
      • New concept:
      • ITU Constitution defines Government tele-communications: (…) originating with any diplomatic or consular agents (…) [Annex 1014]
      • Telecommunication: Any transmission, emission or reception of signs, signals, writing images and sounds of intelligence of any nature by wire, radio, optical or other electromagnetic systems. [Annex 1012]
    • Methods of legal interpretation
      • Grammatical – actual meaning of words and sentences
      • Contextual – broader textual environment considered
      • Teleological – purpose to be achieved
      • Historical – in light of historical roots
    • Solution for us
      • Evolutive interpretation – the meaning of a concept can change over time (see ECHR practice)
      • We whish to come to a desired result
      • We take into account modern (even political) challenges
      • We circumvent the original concept by reference to modern technologies
    • I’m waiting for your questions
