Access from EThOS:
The rule of non-interference in the internal affairs of the receiving State, which is today enshrined in Article 41 (1) of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, contains a fundamental duty of the diplomatic agent. But the Convention does not define the scope and extent of the concept of interference, nor its relationship with norms which inform its character. This thesis investigates a particular form of interference: interference through the diplomatic message. In its first part it examines the problems arising from an analysis of the available sources on the law of diplomatic interference. It also approaches the meaning of "interference" in diplomatic relations and endeavours to come to an understanding of the diplomatic message and its legal bases, and of the legal context of the rule of non-interference.
