Since six decades ago, the United Nations Charter has clearly prohibited the use of force. Nevertheless, armed conflicts, weather international or non-international, occur and pose their social, economic, political and legal threats and complexities. At the same time, the treaties will also be affected. The outbreak of hostilities among states was excluded from the Vienna Convention on Law of Treaties. The Effects of Armed Conflicts on Treaties was on the agenda of the International Law Commission during its fifty-second session in 2000 and Professor Ian Brownlie was appointed as special rapporteur. The doctrine formerly held that the outbreak of wars ipso facto cancels all treaties previously concluded except those concluded on the matter of war. But the majority of modern writers on international law have abandoned this standpoint and now holding that war by no means annuls every treaty. Two Criteria of intent and compatibility are used to determine the effects of armed conflicts on treaties. The extent of effects depends on the genre of treaties. With regard to the classification of treaties, this study tries to examine the effects of armed conflicts on treaties.
