Denunciation

     IRC site

CRC Article = 52
Note:
The denunciation of a treaty is an act whereby a State Party gives notice that it no longer wishes to be bound by that treaty. Denunciation of the CRC may only take place in conformity with Article 52, which provides that States Parties may denounce the CRC by written notification to the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Denunciation becomes effective one year after the date of receipt of the notification by the Secretary-General. The rules of international treaty law concerning the denunciation of treaties are set forth in Articles 54 and 56 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (1969).
